Ambience (poetry)

What is naturally present 
Since my youth, poetry has been a constant presence in my life. It became more so in recent years when I launched my blog, Mjölnir Sings.

Mjölnir Sings is a poetry blog I created when I turned 50, as a challenge and a gift to myself and to my community. Since then, and for the last four years, I have published a poem every Thursday. 
To find out more about Mjölnir Sings, the meaning of its name and to read the poems, please visit:



Future writings will be posted to this page as well.

With the help of a posse of family, friends and faithful readers, Songs from the Hammer, represents the best of Mjölnir Sings in book form, 43 poems distilled down from 215.
