Gratulerer


Gratulerer med dagen alle sammen i Norge!

Happy Constitution Day, Norway!

A month today, I will discover you for the first time, reconvene with some of my Norskie friends and take a bite for the first time 🙂

I cannot wait to cross the sea, fly along that 60N Latitude eastward and see your mountains shooting off water in the sky 🙂

Shetland, Norge, a long story tainted with love and deep friendship 🙂 

Today, am clad in your colours. My D-Day countdown has begun 🙂

poetry day 2014

It is today, so enjoy it! UK National Poetry Day IMG_6771.JPG

Mine is painted in pink & blue as observed from this morning’s luminous sunrise 🙂

Here, my humble stone to the edifice,
with a poem dedicated as a token of geopoetical friendship:

For Tanja M., host, friend and LĂĽbeckerin

LĂĽbeck-Lerwick

In Between LĂĽbeck & Lerwick,
there is only a thin blue
line,
forest of domes
in shades of green,
where bell towers echo
warm chimes,
their
majesty,
red & black
brick – a bric-Ă -brac
lost inside time…
In between
LĂĽbeck & Lerwick,
there are waterways as
lifelines,
olive-green
painted iron brigs*,
our sense of place among
islands, miles of
cobbled streets where
footprints tattoo themselves
and find a home.
In between
LĂĽbeck & Lerwick,
there are white sails rigged to
our hearts, wooden floors
polished out of dreams,
where we wander
in between
doors
now
left
for a
lifetime.

* brigs = Shetlan word 4 bridges
