Skygarden Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer in Switzerland Directed by Fabian Weber 2017

“We are all on the journey we call life;
And as it unrolls before us, day after day,
We never know where it will lead.
It seems we spend our lives trying to
Capture life’s special moments.
To hold on to forever.”

Skygarden Cinematic Poem Short Film Trailer in Switzerland Directed by Fabian Weber 2017

“Auditory perception is triggered by tonal phenomenona, such as language and music. These stimuli are the gateway to recent and distant memories of all kinds, the sequences of pleasant and often unpleasant experiences that shape and accompany us throughout our lives. They are part of us and make us who we are today.

An emotional homage to Switzerland, nature, music and life in all its facets.”

“The City” by Langston Hughes

In the morning the city
Spreads its wings
Making a song
In stone that sings.

In the evening the city
Goes to bed
Hanging lights
Above its head.

“Hinterhof” (Yellow Tulips: Poems 1986-2011) by James Fenton

“Stay near to me and I’ll stay near to you —
As near as you are dear to me will do,
Near as the rainbow to the rain,
The west wind to the windowpane,
As fire to the hearth, as dawn to dew.

Stay true to me and I’ll stay true to you —
As true as you are new to me will do,
New as the rainbow in the spray,
Utterly new in every way,
New in the way that what you say is true.

Stay near to me, stay true to me. I’ll stay
As near, as true to you as heart could pray.
Heart never hoped that one might be
Half of the things you are to me —
The dawn, the fire, the rainbow and the day”

“Walking on the sunny path or walking on the shady path,
Which one do I prefer?
That’s how I understood love.
The sunny path or the shady one.
Always between the two hesitating which one to take with a conflicting mind.
I never considered them compatible.
Love was in both paths, both paths were mine to take.
But why did I feel guilty and anxious seeing how the wind blows on the other side?

Whenever you hesitate between eating a lemon or an orange
Whenever the taste is bland
but you hesitate between salt and sugar
When one thing you used to like becomes now unlikable for no apparent reason
When the clothes that were ironed
are mistaken for dirty washing and put in the washing machine

When you’re faced with such hopeless situations
It’s time to move on and leave.”
