Friday Bliss #18 - Beauty in the Polar Night


A few mobile shots from my early morning walk yesterday. One of the neighbours
has these beautiful fairy lights on her umbrella shaped elm ❤︎
Light in the dark polar night is so needed and people keep them till February on their yards...


This is my living Christmas tree, still bearing lights - a thuja Brabant at the house corner...


This week I read Aila Meriluoto’s poems - a writer who celebrated her 95th birthday yesterday. 
She wrote poems of this collection at the age over 80 - how great is that!
HERE some of her older poems translated into English.

We long lived women, ---
We never stop, we only live. Ruthlessly.
...

Let’s taste together pure this. Existence.


In clothes I don’t mind pink, but it is great in tulips ❤︎



Wishing you all a beautiful winter weekend!

  6. Thank you Riitta ! The poet you quoted made me happy: “we long-lived women, we never stop. We only live. Ruthlessly.” (Closing in on 80 myself ...I can but hope!). I do love your pink tulips and I can understand the need for lights this time of year,
