Treasures on the wall


For hours I can dream about the picture; about the “Storm at Sea” painting with above the buoy and the clock at a quarter to three. The storm is but a painting, but the buoy hangs there still. The same for the clock: just the symbol of the minutes that count through eternity.

Who writes the story/poem about this wall?


Uren kan ik dromen over de foto; over het “Storm op Zee” schilderij, met daar boven de reddingsboei en de klok op kwart voor drie. De storm is maar een schilderij, toch hangt de boei er. Het zelfde voor de klok: symbool voor de minuten die spelen voor de eeuwigheid.

Wie schrijft het verhaal/gedicht over deze muur?


Des heures durant je peux rêver devant la photo ; devant le tableau « Tempête en Mer » avec accrochée au-dessus la bouée de sauvetage et la pendule sur trois heures moins le quart. La tempête n’est qu’un tableau, la bouée est quand même là. Tout comme la pendule : symbole des minutes qui comptent devant l’éternité.

Qui écrit l’histoire/poème de ce mur ?


About Martinke

Born in Holland (The Netherlands), after a short art & theatre study, I left my home country on the age of 19 to travel the world (I thought). Ever since I’m the “TravelerWhoStayed” on my way between past, future & languages. For more than 45 years I live in southern France, puzzled by life and the strangeness of walking around for a while on planet Earth. Writing words, stories, texts, making pictures, images, has become an obsession to me, while being lost between languages. View all posts by Martinke
