Sollaug Sárgon
be satisfied with life

These are poems that are related to nature, and that often refer to specific places by name – in the present, past and future. A particular place might be important on one occasion, for a certain length of time, while other places have a more permanent significance. This reflects the circle of life. The poet quietly describes sources of joy and gratitude, but also their opposite: she is aware that a joyful light can be extinguished, and knows why it happens.
