"Sickle moon still there in daylight.

We long for things as they were.
We want them back,
our blue-black nights, and the stars."
-"In the Sun"

When I think of Finland I think of blue ice and fjords.
Does the Finland of my mind have anything to do with the Finland of fact?
Little feet, little feet.

These are short, very haiku-esque poems. They capture Finland's nature and quiet in their essence and are somewhat delicate and skeletal, leaving space around them.
