 A VIEW OF A FRIEND
(a shadorma)

Day of rest.
A time for healing.
My good friend
is the best.
On her couch, I sprawled all day,
THANKS! is what I say!

PORTRAIT OF A FINN

Straight forward
and dependable.
Friendly once
introduced.
Educated, hard working.
Cultured and techno.

Posted for 100 Days of Summer 2014 (Facebook Group): 64 ~ Portrait.  And…dedicated to all the Finnish photographers in the “100 Days” group who I now call friends. These are admirable traits that are listed on Squidoo as typical for Finns…and traits I’ve come to recognize. I’m not sure all of this is conveyed in the image — but I loved the title of the photograph so much I knew right away I wanted to use it for my poem.

FROZEN SMILES

Just selfies
for me, no auto
biograph –
fees are too
great: everyone would see the
