nostalgia


Lokakuun lopun lumiset päivät.
Nämä ovat muistamisen aikoja.
Ovet sulkeutuvat, toiset avautuvat.
Katselen vanhoja maisemia toisin silmin,
ajattelen maisemanreunaan uusia ovia.

***

The snowy days of the end of October.
These are the days of rememberin.
Some doors close for good, others open, slowly, slowly.
I look at our old landscapes with new eyes,
see new doors in the corner of each one.

Beautiful images and words. The landscape looks so still :)

Anna, isn't it? I love the first, hazy days of snow so much!

Karen, thank you for your kind words! I wonder which came first -- thoughtfulness or the landscape...

dolly mixtures, thank you for your kind words. I really do think still is the word that perfectly captures these images and the thought behind them.
