My Heartland

Days light the way
Darkness is not your friend
Sun will bring life again
Winter stack you away

Many a thought born
Between fjords and steep mountains
Sparkling clear summerdays
Mother Nature..dancing in her innocence

From dawn of time
She has given us days of joy
The light beams up a frozen mind
Come with me,you summerday

Vibrating auroral light extinguishes
Replaced with long summer nights
Sooth landscape..but viable
Come spring..come life..Im here waiting
