The beauty of no expression
A granite face turned upon me,
Stoic, immutable, fascinating,
The seas, calm and blue, I watch:
Beneath my skin, ripples run, shudder,
Below the surface, current yields no resonance.
There is no reflection of the sky.
Heartbeats of thunder, buried,
Beyond the horizon unheard,
A rushing gale engulfing an island,
Tearing rust and blood
from the bent bones of trees,
dumbing their whispers.
The soft light of death
Falls to the ground, silent,
Deposits a cold
So intense,
That the sea becomes land,
The landscape amorphous,
A subtle thaw takes hold
An unindulgent disclosure,
As the rain, urgent and frustrated,
As the warm, furious air,
Excites the lick of waves:
And still their rocking,
Reveals nothing of the sea.

A brilliant blue trail

Chat poetry
Everything in this chat box
looks like poetry
if you pause on each line
they came and gave us a
refund and collected the pizzas
almost a haiku
I like the "Bleurgh" at the end
you are making me
paranoid now!
How so
you are turning my words
into poetry!
Are your words
not poetry
my dear?

Finnish indie has Gusto
Behind busker and X-factor finalist Elias Hämäläinen stand a band of family and friends and an internationally appealing alternative rock sound.
A big deal has been made of the street music performed by X-Factor's "raspy-throated singer" among the press reels of the popular reality television competition, but mention of his band and their original music seems to have been brushed under the rug. Originally formed in 2003, Gusto consisted of brothers Markus and Elias Hämäläinen, bassist Kari Heininen and drummer Tuomas Laivaara. Lead Guitarist Mikko Heikkilä joined them later to complete the line-up and they went on to achieve second place in Finland's Emergenza final 2009, with Elias collecting the reward for best singer. But what has the band been doing in the year since then, while their lead singer takes on reality TV?
Gusto gig in sparsely populated rooms of die-hard indie music fans, performing in Helsinki venues where bands start to stretch their

A Host of Ha Has
A host of Ha Has swarms like bees
They break, they break, they quake and cleave
In solemn pride and cobweb leaves
A host of Ha Has turns and grieves
Where fickle hopes and glory breeds
The strange, eloping, horny sneeze
To take toad's eyes and hoary deeds
A host of Ha Has swarms like bees
A host of Ha Has swarms like bees
They ache, they ache, they churn and need
Which in the old-time stubbled reeds
Turns Ha Has against money weeds
The breaking flies of money weeds
An old mistake gold-gilt with seed
The crumble-down of tumbled creed
Turns Ha Has against money weeds
They wait, they wait, they rush and bleed!
A host of Ha Has turned to pleas;
A littered roof of bumble seed.

She takes to the stage poised like a mouse,
People will notice
She lets out the first few notes,
Waiting, holding in breath
And there's more,
Right where it should be
She's no mouse.
And she makes herself beautiful when she performs
And she makes herself loved when she sings.
She builds the atmosphere,
She lives the atmosphere, is the atmosphere,
It's written on her face.
Drawn into her expression,
She is the
Blues & greys,
Black hat,
Silver earring,
                    just a sliver.
Braid comes down,
A dagger
White socks, crumpled up
Atop brown shoes,
Greys & Blues.

And she makes herself beautiful when she performs
And she makes herself loved when she sings.
And she cries out
Against the sky.

Here it is: Indie in Finland

I just did something that I've been meaning to do for a while, and started a blog where I  can report on live events I attend. If it kicks off I might be able to get other people to guest blog about events that I couldn't make it to, too, but that's probably hoping for a bit much.

Posting on my sparsely populated DeviantArt page and Twitter feed probably won't get me much interest, and I'll just have to see how much goodwill I can gather from friends willing to spread the word. I think it will be a while before I get any attention outside of that: I'll have to be reporting on a band that someone searches for info about. I'm sure that will happen now and then but I am not going to hold my breath!

However, it needs a lot more content first. The first post is up and there is more to come. I'm starting full time work with Soffa TV as of Monday and there will be plenty to report on over the next eight weeks as we organize music festivals, attend other people's art festivals and so on.
