Hannu Salakka, “Only Feeling Makes”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pelkkä tunne saa
kivet kohoamaan siitä
missä ajatukset ovat levänneet,
mutta kun avaan suuni
ei sieltä suostu tulemaan puhetta.

::::::::::::::::

Only feeling makes
the stones rise
whence thoughts have been resting,
but when I open my mouth
it is unwilling to be spoken.

—Hannu Salakka, Myötäisien tuulien risteykssesä (Otava, 1978), p. 34. Photo and translation by Living in FIN
