about a month ago, my poem summer storm got a daily deviation! i really liked working on this one so it's fun that other people have found it worth reading. at some point i was only doing photography, then poetry took over, and now i think i'm trying to find a balance and the interface between the two. i think this was part of that. thanks to @DelightfulDolphin for suggesting it and for @Barosus for featuring it! :heart:

A couple of weeks ago, my poem 'can the sea drown?' was published in the journal Consilience! You can read it here and listen to me reading it here. When reading it, I was really glad I had included the words 'silicious ooze' in the poem. They're tasty words. :D Consilience is an online journal that publishes science poetry. I enjoyed working with their editors!

poetry news

So apart from the good news of my poem 'raised a girl' getting Daily Deviation recently, I have some other fun poetry-related news: at the beginning of September, I was awarded third prize in a poetry competition here in Finland. :) The competition was for Swedish-language poems (by a Fenno-Swedish foundation), and you could send in up to 10 poems. I sent in a collection of kayaking/friendship related poems, and found out during the summer that they apparently had liked it. There were 156 entries, and the judges were writers whose work I respect a lot. So that was a confidence boost! There was an award ceremony and everything, with two actors reading excerpts of the winning poems, music, a streamed discussion with the winners, and good food at the end. All the information and poetry is in Swedish, but here are a couple of links to the news article on the foundation's website and to the digital publication (with a quote from one of my poems on the cover!). As a picture is worth
