Hello there… How do you do?

I am a writer and a poet too,

How about you?

I tell stories… or rhyme,

Words I make mine,

Do you? I wish I knew.

“A pleasure…! And oh, so fine…”

I can assure the pleasure is mine.

Ma’am, may I offer a nice cup of tea…?

I see… Coffee… same as me.

Sir, perhaps a good cigar…?

And do tell me who you are…

Are you visiting from afar?

No, we’re not sitting on a shining star.


You see, high over fake virtual skies,

Are mysterious lands without lies…

And intolerant people far behind,

Kari’s World you did indeed find.

Want a cookie dear, from Granny here…

Ohhhh… Silly me…!

Perhaps I’m not quite what you see…

Still having a rather young soul,

For souls hardly get old...

In time that does not exist,

But somehow hard to resist.

Now seeing a very affable smile…

Do stay and enjoy my world for a while!

And please come again!


You’re Always Welcome, my Friend!

Who springs from Norwegian ground,
A sturdy and ironic shoot
Who sings herself to world renown.

Ilana 20.07.2014 02:48

Kari, love this is so pretty, I simply love it and I love you.Shores

shores are sometimes longing for a river.
I saw one day a shore
that a river left it dry
with a broken heart of send and stone.
And man, and man is also sometimes fated
to be left aban
