From Norway with Love

NORWAY | Thursday, 24 July 2008 | Views [569]

"Go to that place, it's wonderful!

It is my uncle's place", she said.

Her uncle spoke "You can come and guide the people,

and sell fish - not too much! Earn good money,

and enjoy your time."

We were so excited.

We took a canoe,

we crossed the lake

and found a little beach.

Now we are here.

All you ever hear

is the wind

in the trees,

is the wind

in the sea.

The flying ash

of rotten roots,

old traces of an elk.

The shiny mirror of the sky

sparkling from the water.

Fallen leaves - both green and brown -

Dragonflies

with deadly skill

and vivid joy

hunting down

their innocent prey.

The shadows hiding from the sun

with all the clouds passing by,

and the stones that look at you

- ever changing, never shy.

They all speak with one clear tongue:

"You're only guests."
