Visual rhymes and rhythms of Bali


Repeatedly the swelling surfs smash against the volcanic shores
The eastern gale makes the tender-green ricestalks sigh
The believers murmur prayers while tendering their floral offerings
The staccato and enticing spiels of the market vendors
The hypnotic crystaline music of the gamelan's gongs and xylophones
The punctuating hammer-strikes of the artist and artisans

This island paradise pulsates with life... the heartbeat of the Balinese
The rhythm and its endless variations recapitulates in rhymes. Beckoning all...
alas, all I can capture are only images... Bali, I will return.

Thank you. Madamo gid nga salamat. Khob khun Krap.
