The stamina drag him in. Another quote from German poetry:
"Halb zog sie ihn, halb sank er hin,
da war's um ihn gescheh'n."
Goethe, The Fisher

Eva - that darn Eternal Feminine.

Unhomely indeed, but in a good way

Ginga Squid said...

Always a possibility when scuba diving in a drysuit & you get the air trapped in your boots by mistake! Plus that helmet looks v heavy....

Very artistic & beautiful squids!

ArtSparker said...

Hello, Mr. Roy. Are you going to post this year? I live in hope.

Ginga - thank you, feeling the validation.

Mister Roy said...

Susan, I'm also the walkinghometo50 guy, so I have managed a couple of posts this year - heck, I was blogging early on New Year's Day! But a mild illness is slowing me down :(

Titus said...

I'm with Ginga, loving the cephalopods. The rest reminds me of a story by Anais Nin, undoubtedly from Delta of Venus. But that's not very German.

ArtSparker said...

Mister Roy, whew then.

Titus, cephalopod love...who knew, I would have though only a mother could.

I don't know any of this , Susan, but I would hazzard a guess that ,no, there is no dental hygiene after death. In a lot of cases in my family there's none before it either.

With the title "Mother" I was expecting to see Tony Perkins. Creeping up on someone with gray hair in a rocking chair by the window! Whew!

As soon as I saw the image I remembered Brian King's "Sunken Heart", a lovely tiny book I read after following a link you have included in a post a month or so ago.

Tiny books! How attractive they are!

I leave the German part to braver people ;-)

Cláudia - I am having lunch with Bryan on Monday, I will tell him to check the post out.

Cláudia said...

Susan, I did have a feeling Bryan was the one for Mpnday lunch!

TFE - I know you are Irish, but I am put in mind of Spike Milligan's ode to English Teeth:

...Always having fun
Clamping down on bits of fish
And sausages half done.
English Teeth! Heroes' Teeth!
Hear them clikc! and clack!
Let's sing a song of praise to them -
Three Cheers for the Brown, Grey and Black!

Susan, love the Spike Milligan reference! Still need to find more of his works...
