Curious



When I want to see,

not to be seen,

I climb higher and higher.

On the roof tops I sit,

looking down and up,

up I go.

Until there’s nothing left to see.

 

Only the bare nothingness of everything.

 

Worth seeing.

The weekly theme for Moody Monday is curious

Sneaky business!

Have to start benging my neck while walking in down town Helsinki... Good reason to stay away :D

SusuPetal said...

I'm watching you, Lepis!

Peter said...

I tried to see in which street corner this was taken, but I'm lost. I remember that the best top view of Helsinki is from the Torni women's toilet - where I was once invited! I guess you have tried it?

SusuPetal said...

Helsinki down town has completely changed because of the new Kamppi-mall -the old bus station doesn't exist anymore, the mall is on that place.

I've never been to the Torni toilet, Peter! How did you get that invitation!!!

philosophy??!!

SusuPetal said...

Oh, no philosophy here, broacsarea, just a bird perspective:)

hpy said...

May I say that I like your picture?

Mick said...

I love your curious words here, Susu. :)

SusuPetal said...

You may, HPY!

Just pure nonsense, Mick, my words:)

Liisa said...

Take care up there!

SusuPetal said...

Yes, Liisa, I won't fall!

What if I were afraid of heights?

Fortunately you are not :) And you make it sound safer than I could have thought.

KennethSF said...

That's a bird's eye view, as people like to call it. Does the poet feel like becoming a bird, free from the emotional attachments that ground most of us?

SusuPetal said...

It can be safe, jl.

You're right, Kenneth, free for at least for a moment.

This was the best one so far from these.

Did the english thingy, almost.

SusuPetal said...

It's fun to make photo series, chrome3d, English or not:)

Peter said...

I had the time to see and visit the Kamppi mall before I left (for the last time)!

I was invited by TWO nice Finnish ladies! (The mens' toilet is of no interest there, nothing to see!) :-)

SusuPetal said...

Finnish ladies are so nice, Peter:)

SusuPetal,
that image is extraordinary,
brilliant really, as is the poem.

Congratulations on winning David's Post of the Day award!

jinksy said...

Can't decide which I enjoyed most, picture or poem...both beautiful.

SusuPetal said...

ArneA, thank you, as well thanks to Merisi and Jinksy.

The Egel Nest said...

Found you through David's blog! :)

Thanks, Sandi!
