Unter dem Manhartsberg

Under the Manhart mountain

Images about and from the Weinviertel region in Lower Austria exploring its cultural landscapes shaped by monocultural agriculture, industry and loneliness. Between the lines though is where these heavy human shaped lands hide a certain melancholic beauty for those willing to sense it.

…until from afar
come the voices
of windows beaten by the wind
in deserted houses,
and broken oxen
go by to drink at the estuary.
Then I must ask time for
a memory that does not deform
in the murky pool of memory.

“Imagen para un estanque”

With the yellow cry
of the Vachellia
the morning wakes up.
