Caturday Poem 2

“In nine lifetimes, you’ll never know as much about your cat as your cat knows about you”
Michel de Montaigne

Caturday Poem 

I still remember
That day in September
When a furry bundle of joy
Appeared at my door
And with a loud roar
Shouted: Ahoy!

Over thirty years ago
With four more in tow
With fullest of force
Changing the course
Of my entire life
Without much strife

The Finnish Dream for Favourite Foto Friday

Posted in FavFotoFriday

“Do not cross the brook for water” Finnish proverb

The Finnish Dream

A cottage on an island
Preferably on the highland
Still near or in the city
No running water nor electricity
Not another soul in sight
If you dare to enter
You will soon be in plight
Because the center
Of each Finns existence
Is the calculated distance
From their neighbour
Preferably as far as the equator

The Label Maker for TBT

Posted in Throwback Thursday

“Labels are for cans, not people” Anthony Rap

The Label Maker

Hey you with your label maker!
You like tagging people don’t ya, you faker!
You went right by me and took one look
Stuck this sticker on my forehead without a single hook
I am having a hard time getting it off
Did you think it would make a great perma-label on this spot?

But guess what, you nut
I washed my face with potent soap in a rut
With a huff and a puff
My forehead finally crystal clear and clean again
Luckily without the use of acid rain
And nothing of it sticking to my brain

No amount of glue
Will keep the sticker on my face
Your plan went sadly askew
Or were you just in the wrong place
Memorize this lesson
Into your big fat head
Go find some cans for making the impression
And label some of them instead

White for Mundane Monday I one

“I love the Mediterranean for the fact that winter is over in a minute, and the almond blossom arrives in January” Jade Jagger



Whiter than white
The blanket so tight
Woven onto the ground
And into our minds

Yes it’s winter
Oh joy!?

(She says sarcastically
What she means really)

Quite the splinter
And a clever ploy!

First it was nice
Now it seems
You are staying
Just of spite


Palm Sunday

Posted in Celebration/Tradition

“Virvon, varvon tuoreeks, terveeks, tulevaks vuodeks, valoisaks kevääks, lämpimäks suveks, pääsiäispyhäks ja juhannustuleks. Vitsa sulle, palkka mulle!”

Palm Sunday

Watch out
Little witches are about
When at your doorstep they enter
Make sure to bribe them like a big spender
For aches and pains and other ailments
Out the door with the witches went
If you try from the witches hide and ignore
Be prepared, for the rest of the year to be sore!
