yrkir titill svhv2019.


Early in the morning:

the calm so clear,
light refracted in pearls of snow,
grasses awakening,
a thrush on a branch
and swans in V-formation
with the southerly wind
under their wings.
The world around
melting together
into a new beginning.

the migratory birds stand
on the threshold of time.
