Ilha Formosa Taiwan Where Mountains Meet the Sea (2008)

Some stills from this short (40-min) documentary, with no spoken language, only music.
OK, I lied, it's image-heavy. Some stills have subs with explanation what is shown. I kept some, because so little is known about this small country.
See, China, what did I do here?

Volcanoes - The Fires of Creation (2018)


This was a short documentary, with annoying narration. That's why I am weary of docus that are shown on some festivals etc. because they are so personal. And I don't care about it. Give me numbers, data, facts. I grew up with nature documentaries where sir Attenborough was giving the info on how long the flamingos' legs are. I want to learn something and it's not how the narrator felt, or pondering on flying bag as the meaning of life.
But oh well, some screenshots are nice.

Saturday Poetry Corner 67: Les Malades


Today, a poem by Emile Verhaeren (1855–1916), a Belgian poet. 

I have to admit, I adore the metrum of French verses and the English translation, although good, pales with it.
