March 2016 Theme Day: Where I belong

My Heimat are the Dolomites.

Each 1st day of the month is "Theme Day" of the City Daily Photo Community.

As a Bonus a Poem of my friend Roland Verra in Ladin language
(my mother's language - read the translation below.)

Da tlo uinans,
scirmei te n mond
che ie for plu dedora...
Luech dla desmincënza,
tiera dura y crëp,
śën te lascions
a ti arbandonn semient
cun l passà
de chëi che ie stac
y ne s'arjonj nia plu...
Vënt cruf de nëif
liëia mi sentì
pesoch de duel
ala natura.



We came from here,
thrown into a faraway world...

Place of oblivion,
hard soil and rock,
we leave you now
to your dreaming abandon
together with the past
of those who have lived
and don't reach us anymore...

Raw wind of snow
ties my feelings
heavy with pain
to nature.

The landscape is beautiful and rugged, so much like life.

Such beauty surrounds you!

What a place: the sound of the Ladin language is even more beautiful than your photo!

A wonderful photo and a wonderful poem and a great post for the theme, Karl!

Looks wonderful! But I'm sure life could be hard at times in the shadow of those peaks.
