A dark sky above the Vallunga

A dark sky above Val longia / Vallunga / Langental - Gardena Valley.

This post joins hundreds of other bloggers' skies at SkyWatch Friday.


Poem in Ladin language by Roland Verra. (read the translation below).

Prova ma n iede
a pensé do:

l surëdl se stënta
a romper tres l nibl,
l verzon s'la dorm
sota la bruma,
savan che l n'ie nia ëura
de levé

y ti speranzes
ne se nfida nianca
a se dé da ntënder
sota la chëutra foscia
de ti tëmes...


Now try
to think of this:

the sun is barely able
to break through the clouds,
the garden is sleeping
under the frost,
well aware
it's no time to awaken

and your hopes
do not dare
to crawl out
from under the blanket
of your fears...


  1. Love this scenic view of rocks under a dark sky.

  2. Love the poem. It's very evocative of the scene. I do think, however, those cows are going to get wet!

  3. A beautiful image! I think there might be some rain coming soon.

  4. Lovely photo, Karl, and a beautiful poem to go with it!

  5. Hard to think about frost on a day that was approaching 100F!

  6. This is a lovely scene. I like all the contrasting colors. Well done.
