A fearless crow
standing in white snow
& caws trice

fresh waters
cleaning gravel

Visited my friend again.
This picture is from his cottage by Deatnu.

Deatnu, lappish, meaning The Big River. In Finnish Teno.

mosquitoes, I
awake, sweating at night...
haunted morning

We just visited my mother-in-law (93 years).
Eastern Finland (Ilomantsi & Lake Koitere).
Two last days, or nights, were occupied by some angry mosquitos...

Usually I don't use so many dots in so short texts, but here I had to.

In the blue sky
not any single clouds --
dusty wind

This is from my old notebook eleven years ago.
Saved this text, here is one possible version:

closed door
keeping the dusts outside -
this fierce wind

Snowflakes ...
as mosquitoes
in the summer

a good time for our sun
to wake up earlier

Merry Christmas

summer holiday -
vileness by the lake
& bright sun

Global Freezing

Finland, and some parts of Europe, got a long and cold spring.

Coldest for a hundred years, they say.

Continuous jet streams directly from north Pole area.

I'm calling this climate as a Global Freezing.

trying to sleep --
a cold polar airstream
not willing to

Easter ...
the global freezing

Visited my mother-in-law at Vinkara, Kivilahti, at Ilomantsi. (Eastern Finland.)

The word "vinkara" is said to be an old Sami or Lappish word. They are supposed to live there some thousand years ago, after the ice age. Just some names left. Vinkara means a hill with some kind of freezing wind. Nowadays there are some Sami-people (Lappish) living in Northern part of Finland, Sweden and Norway and Russia. I have some friends among them over there.
