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.

whirling snowstorm --
an express train
on its own

Good one, Tikkis --

on its own
the earth spins --
an imaginary world

trains delayed
due to rain/snow--
the world waits
drinking coffee
and beer

Fog, yet not
i can see it coming
the night train

Royalty and copyright, to Tikkis :)

black no sugar

Thanks, John!

Devika:

I woke up --
lost my ticket
to nowhere


this dusky afternoon --
some blurry coffee
left in a cup


(Sometimes I'll have some red wine in the train, too!)


Bill:

Goodie!

jammed
in heavy snow --
Café's door

Magyar:

two consenting
icicles
knitted together

Gillena; thanks!

afternoon sun
counting the shadows --
snowdrifts

a payment by courier--
sharing my tea
with a courier boy

The Heaven of Hell --
a warm greenhouse-rain
hissing



the courier boy
leaving the dishes
