Ari Alsio was born in Hyvinkää, Southern Finland, on 12th June, 1956. Post his life as an entrepreneur in the construction business, Alsio has turned a free lord and writes poems for fun. His interests include, but are not limited to, dogs, oil painting, poetry and water colour. He has written palindromes and poems in the Kalevala meter ( a loose trochaic tetrameter used in the Finnish national epic Kalevala). Currently, he blogs in Uusi Suomi, a Finnish online newspaper. “I am” pictures the poet at crossroads. It is a rider’s snapshot as he drives past the poet. The poet knows only too well that at the end of that journey, the rider will find him, may be only him.
