After a continuous 50 frosty weather days we got a second warmer day here today. Snow's beginning to melt. Some rain.

A busy week

I spent again many days in Helsinki (See photo in my
Finnish blog
& Facebook). Today is the first warmer day in Turku. Snows are melting. Raining, water.

It's Saturday morning. I woke up and wrote some haiku-lines in my notebook, then I read this morning's breakfast news_ Magnitude 8.8 OFFSHORE MAULE, CHILE, Saturday, February 27, 2010 at 06:34:14 UTC

White winter & the greenhouse effect

I wrote a comment in Adelaide's blog:

winter morning in bed --
no rush
to make any breakfast

Sometimes I write comments here and there, making those look like three liners. Sometimes those perhaps are also haiku.

We have got some snow here, too, but not so much.

Freezing cold it has also been; our warming system is working days and nights. Working anyway. Here is one variation for this snowy climate:

new white snow
on an old white snow --
our greenhouse turning white?

I wrote a wintry-train story (such a haibun) in my Finnish blog, from that serie I left one and now wrote it into Bill's blog:

in a trembling train
sipping my coffee --
the paper cup's warmth

Bill's blog is here.

The language is filled with interesting variations:

in a trembling rain
sipping my coffee --
the paper cup's warmth

Yesterday I visited Helsinki. The morning train was late. I got two cups of coffee. When returning back the train was late again. This time I wasn't in a hurry. I had one tin of beer & watched the whirling snow beside our train.
