Life in Bloom

I want to capture Spring but I can’t…I can’t
For it blooms reckless and thaws frozen fears
So, I let love define all seasons

Spring Flowers

Sunny Greetings, Fellow Bloggers!

You’ve probably heard of short Nordic summers. But did you know that spring is even shorter? It came late this year, and is now disappearing faster that I can finish writing the sentence. The last time I checked we were in the depths of winter, and now there’s already talk about summer with high temperatures (28℃) I’ve never witnessed in Finnish summer before.

What kind of talk! When I’m still resurfacing like a crocus buried under a pile of debris. So, it seems (as usual) that I grab spring by its tail. But I hope you’ve been revitalized by the bloom and beauty of the season.

On other news, I’ve been working hard on my debut poetry chapbook. I promise to deliver it to you soon. Stay tuned, and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog for latest developments!

On hiatus…

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes…including you.” ~ Anne Lamott

Hiatus – a pause or a gap, where something is missing.

And this is exactly what I’m doing now; unplugging myself. Not so much that I need rest, but to focus on one thing at a time.

…will be back shortly.

Frozen Scream

Lips
swell.
Dimples
on rosy cheeks
ignite winning smile
yet scream hangs; a lump in the throat.
Prettiness and innocence interrupted as the
sweet sixteen rebels and conforms
merging cultures; a
pleasure and
bother.
Lips
part.

note: This is my Fibonacci poem attempt with a syllable count per line 1/1/2/3/5/8/13, and then back down. Phew…such counting fun!
