Boing Being - Friday 10 - SELF-PORTRAIT



THE PIKKULAULU

In the lautaskuoppa of the horse of Kupera nests saveta

Be a good horse, be,
it gallops over the hatred

Be a courageous horse,
the forest gallops open

open over the fear, run, a grass, a sea,
take the wind,
the brush is a heart,
a hair brushes the eyes,
there is a hair

inside every horse a sleep lives,
song of the moist shell
which never ceases

And the foot to step

water to fill the light to pierce your place
your lung lets

the mornings come - -

the picture is never your own

(as translated from Finnish into English with variety of online translators)
