Chain Bridge

Piece by Piece

Wish I were more capable just now. No sleep last night. Had the flow when making some things – writings and …

bridge in mist
the troubled souls walk over
mine cleared

… thinkings and drawings … how lucky I am. To have that terrific flow I mean 😉
And I like my haiku – it contains different meanings – what about last line 😉

Well I remembered today to visit the Geisha exhibition and it was very interesting. I’m glad I did. Despite the depressing grey weather and unsafe walking in snowy streets. But the Chain Bridge looks great in any weather. That’s for sure!

maybe a favorit
there are some treasures in mind
worth saving
while memories fade away
piece by piece

Some moody weather, isn’t it? The Parliament almost vanished behind the Chain Bridge.

There is a song “Piece by Piece” with Katie Melua – a beautiful one. She is really good! Men min favorit är “The closest thing to Crazy”.

Budapest and the Chain Bridge - Uniting Buda and Pest

Bridges that Unite

You love the mountains. I love the sea. Both love adventures in the promising horizon. Both love to be part in each other’s worlds. Togetherness in sharing. Apartness in longing.

“When the sky touches the earth there is true love” our kisses whisper to the stars.

a single star
hit by the whispering kisses
fell down
true love secured
receipt from the sky

Close together – on the savory rocky beach or in the fragrant highland meadow – there always are stars in the sky. And bridges that unite.


Sometimes I am not initially fully aware about what my thinking and words create. Seems like my inner mind – my subconscious – also is working but I don’t realize it until afterwards – like here in this post. It is so united everything. I make upp the story about he and she. With no thinking about Budapest. As no sea and no mountains. And then i fits perfect with Buda’s hilly side and Pest’s flatland. And on top of the cake – the statue 😉

It’s not the first time this happens.

This piece of art on Gellert Hills shows Buda (king) and Pest (queen) uniting – Budapest.

Start shooting

It’s impossible to mope when visiting Budapest. Even if your friend is dedicated to photography. I can understand it’s boring sometimes. Stopping all the time to shoot photos when you just want to walk and chat – being together. S/he is never 100 % with you.
My advice:

-Start shooting you too!

-Go to Budapest!

Daily prompt: Mope.

Budapest in my Heart

Bewitching Evening

Walking my lonely evening walk among all these people. Feeling the festive air of the city I’m so in love with. All these beauty – and I do not mean things – I mean the feelings it gives – to me. Three poems popped up in my head.

three bottles
a day kept Christmas away
creativity orgie

Ha ha … sometimes I’m so funny to be with! I smiled to everybody in the street and a Japanese lady first answered with a smile and then looked a bit confused.

the scent
of your strong chest – protecting
beating hearts

Ah … I would like you to be here. Walking along with me. Holding my hand. Enjoying life. Chat, discuss and giggle. And most of all – just being. Feeling the scent of each other in mutual respect for – what so ever. (This popped up just now).

you know
hawks are hunting – but only
in the sky

Now I find myself close to the boarder. The ‘besinged’ Danube. This beautiful place like in a fairytale. The Danube – so fresh and swirling. Had to sit down on a bench. Breath and sigh. Such a wonderful little spot in Universe. Just mine … for now …

clouds dancing
shadows on the castle facade
thrillingly me

How can you resist …

Carpe Diem: #1108 – Promise.

I don’t usually shoot this kind of selfies – everybody else do – bewitching evening probably 😉

How can you resist!?

Crazy Art by me - I'm the kind that is fathful - to my Free Soul

I’m the kind

No crazy thoughts popping up today on my walkabout over and between the bridges. I was too busy with testing camera settings in this half misty day. Soon I will look at my photos but first that only poem coming in my head when I was almost at home. I think it is a little folly …. or?

I’m the kind of
faithful
You weren’t

I’m the kind that wants
closeness
You weren’t

I’m the kind that
not betray
You weren’t

Daily Prompt: Folly.

To cheat – put on a veil and hide

Suddenly I became
very tired.
The truth is
I am so fed up
with the veil
issue –
how it is
discussed.
From France, around the world
to Sweden.
The quality of the
debate is sadly low.
The satiric humor
is always a release.

To cheat is a kind of –
put on a veil
and hide
somewhat.

Buda & Kung Stefan

Jag har tagit några långpromenader i Budapest denna helgen. Fint väder har det varit. Idag 14 grader varmt.

statue_20140216_stephen1  St Stephen – Kung Stefan – är en oerhört viktig person för Ungrarna och deras historia. Det var han som enade alla stammarna och det var han som kristnade Ungern. Runt 1000-talet hände detta. Den stora katedralen är ju uppkallad efter honom och där förvaras hans högra hand. Denna statyn är min favoritstaty på Kung Stefan. Klicka gärna upp bilden nedan och se på alla detaljerna. Vilket arbete.

Statsbesök tydligen. Då smyckas Kedjebron med besökande landets flagga. Det är väl en fin gest.bridge_20140216_chainHär på Budasidan finns det många fina gamla hus och spännande gränder. Alltid lika kul att gå omkring här med kameran.
