Rubaiyat#52 Inverted Bowl

Rubaiyat#52 Inverted Bowl

And that inverted bowl we call the sky,
Whereunder crawling coop’t we live and die,
Lift not thy hands to it for help-for it
Rolls impotently on as Thou or I.
(Edward Fitzgerald translation-first ed.,)

I am a Dutch citizen. An architect by profession I am married and have six grandchildren. I am still keen on expressing myself and each day is new and an occasion where I might bring out from within something worthwhile.
