Things you find I two

“The things you see, when you open your eyes” Gun Roswell

Things you find

Blue passage

A door way painted in
The coolest blue, heavily guarded it is
Not, alas, a key you

Need to get inside, into
The divine, which lies behind, the door
Painted all in coolest blue

But if the key you
Manage to find, then consider this an
Invite for you, then enter

Do, you are the few
Allowed to see, what lies behind the
Door painted in coolest blue

Things you find I one

“The things you see, when you open your eyes” Gun Roswell

Things you find

Back to the drawing board

When planning infrastructure for the
Masses, a seemingly easy task to do
Go out there and put

Up a pole, make sure
You have enough wire, to get the
Electricity crackling for all those

Who are in dire need
Other wise your favourite TV show will
Not be shown on the

Tiny black box on top
Of the table in your living room
And the cold cool drink

Will turn up in the
Kitchen sink, tasting bland because it’s hot
And not a cooling beverage

After all, and what about
That fan on the window sill, do
You feel ill, too hot

Because it won’t turn on
For someone forgot to plan electricity for
Your dwelling of a home

Sundays I one

“Sundays, yes, those fun days” Gun Roswell

Sundays

Fine dining on a Sunday 

When the Sunday beckons, it
Is time to reckon, take a rest
Let someone else, put the

Plates on the table, server
The meals as you sit in peace
Letting the Sunday mood wash

All over your face, a
Smile no less, wasn’t too difficult to
Express, especially since the sun

Is shining so warm and
Bright, shades worn outside, but under the
Cooling shade, that’s just fine

Cat Lisa with Mona

Posted in Haiku/Caturday

“The cat on the lap of the known lady, what is that about?” Gun Roswell

Cat Lisa with Mona

The cat was laying on
The lap of the lady quite known
Captured in an image painted

A long time ago, by
A renaissance man familiar to us all
How did we not notice

That darn cat before, sitting
Comfortably, smiling slightly, just like
The lady we all seen

Before, but as it is
There now, the cat with a tail
Will tell you new tales

Streets travelled I four

Posted in Haiku

“All those streets travelled while on the roadside…” Gun Roswell

Streets travelled 

The street filled with restaurants
So many choices, I can eat what
I want, the smells so

Good, all this food, what
To do, what to do? If only
There were just the few

But alas, now I have
To pick one up, take the plunge
And finally, have a meal

Independence Day in Finland (since 06.12.1917)

Posted in Celebration/National Day

“My favourite country is Finland because once you get to a certain point, you can drive for hours without seeing a single person. I love peace and quiet – something I don’t get very often” Christopher Lee

1917

Our Land

Oh Our Land Finland Fatherland
Echo Loudly Golden Word
No Valley No Hill
No Water Shore More Dear
Than This Northern Homeland
This Precious Land Of Our Fathers
No Valley No Hill
No Water Shore More Dear
Than This Northern Homeland
This Precious Land Of Our Fathers
One Day From Your Bud
You Will Bloom
From Our Love Shall Rise
Your Hope Glorious Joy
And Once Your Song Fatherland
Higher Still Will Ring
From Our Love Shall Rise
Your Hope Glorious Joy
And Once Your Song Fatherland
Higher Still Will Ring

Streets travelled I three

“All those streets travelled while on the roadside…” Gun Roswell

Streets travelled 

Red respite at the bus
Stop, a welcome hop for the weary
Traveller, from a foreign land

Sitting and waiting for the transport
Obviously delayed, then what is the choice
To make? Another form of

Vehicles take? Maye a bike
Or skates? But then, the arrival would
Be late and that, is

Not an option, after a moment
Of hesitation, at the almost empty bus
Station, I hailed a cab
