My December 2014 Kigo text

the closed factory gate
a ceased snowstorm

Kigo subject was WINDBREAK

In Finland we have yearly some closed factories...

I myself, as a child, lived inside a small factory and when a Sunday I do remember the silence... Great.

frozen river -
where the fish under the ice
swimming to?

Cool !
First snow
landed safely!

first snow -
someone already
walked on it

November evening -
sky over eastern forests

a clap of thunder -
behind a closed window
an angry world

Friday, July 18, 2014

a thirsty cloud

The whole forest
out of tune -
easterly winds

An early sun

I had a vision how to write An Early Sun as a threeliner:

an early sun
frying up our old moon

Another version, an too early sun peeped straight into my sleepy eyes. Warm enough. A blackbird is busy to feed its babies:

An early sun
watching the blackbird
eating an early worm

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Cool morning -
as nothing special
the sun warming up

Labels: Sunspot, Sun's magnetism

(They say they are dampening down?)

Friday, May 23, 2014

easterly winds -
with an uninvited
hostile mosquito

If someone claims this as a political threeliner,
or a comment for Crimean affairs, etc,

so, what to say?

did you slept enough
during this long winter,
o early sun?

snowman's grave -
some of the memories
rinsed out

This one is a formulation for an old idea:

not yet ready,
     the snowman -
child's afternoon nap

There is not any more snows here, though we just got some sleet,
or perhaps not any snowmen seen around here.

An explanation for this problem was this text variation:

running spring waters
rinsing out -
snowman's grave

All this is from a piece of paper
that was hiding inside Louis Zukofsky's "A", page 376:

"An inequality /// wind flower"

(Copyrighted By Louis Z.)

Tasting that text and I should put the word "flower" as "flowers"


Ps. I understood that Mr. Zukofsky's son does not like to see his father's text borrowed nowhere, but here is just so few words that perhaps no problem?-)

Just a few word
among all the world's poetry
are inequality?

Snow is frozen rain.
It is soft and white
and often settles on the ground.

(From Oxford Wordpower Dictionary, Oxford UP 1993.)

sleet celebrating
the global warming -
1st of May

Here is definition for snow
from Webster's Third New International Dictionary, page 2158:

I prefer that one from small Oxford more poetical one ?-)

freezing cold --
though the global war
getting warmer and warmer

Here I'm tasting the words 'war' - 'warm'...

a farmer
snuggled down -
all the bugs
deeply silent

This one is because I had to write something around the word 'snuggle'.

Anyway, just a few war-news, Afghanistan, Bangkok, Ukraina.

And in Finland somewhat just cold.

And due to Chinese money world economic is going forward.

   my nose dripping 
   onto an icy path - 
   deep-frozen drops
