an American fish in & out of Estonian waters

After the Storm


The sweet soft smell of rain

runs her fingers through the forest.


The mist retreats silently to the sea.


A tree,

bathed by the gentle rain,

scatters the sun’s bright rays

into the forest.


Lichen-covered branches,

framed sharply

against a fresh blue sky,



Nature holds her breath

as if admiring

her own beauty –

the shroud of silence

broken only

by the drip-dropping tears


from leafless branches.
