Lassagammi & Ailu

Some 40 years ago I visited many times my friend Ailu. At that times he lived (when stayed in Finland) in Pättikkä, place by the Swedish border in Finland's Lappland.

Ailu (Nils-Aslak Valkeapää) died a couple years ago. He built a new house over there, Skibotn in Norway, just before he died. That building is now sort of artists' residence.

nobody at home -
with the wind
a soft sound

Have a look:

Did Ailu come with the wind to visit? :-)

Thanks for sharing this story and a lovely verse!

All the best.
