Poetry Contest

true artisans exist

Juha Jarvinen, a Finnish artist who makes HANDMADE authentic Shaman drums.
His work is beyond words. I can not begin to describe it, he is an artisan in every meaning of the word, a true authentic original soul. Really its astonishing what he creates!!!!

His idea was to create 100 drums all different, he says that the drums will find their lawful owner. As the drum is connected to the soul. the very heart of humans. He is inspired by ancient histories, these indeed are what original drums looked like in old times though some are more like art works

Spiritualities

Juha Jarrinen
Has found his Spiritual way
While also creating marvelous works.
You sense that he has achieved inner peace
While also keeping his feet on the ground.
He takes his time to let the wood speak to him
Just like the artist who looks at a block of marble
And while chiseling away finds the great wonder inside,
Just like Michelangelo did.
Jarrinen feels there will be the right and long lasting connection
Between a specific drum and the appropriate Shaman.
Michelangelo worked for a pope
A †different sort of spirituality
But his works are also there to be seen today.

Drums,
Drums,
Drums, in the deep,
The thundering Drum,
that lulls us to sleep,
The Claps of thunder,
the crawling creep,
the eagle's cry, the artisans dye,

the ancient craft, the wavering draft,
the kiss of love,
from the meandering past.

Hail Juha!

1100 Souls

 
Each note is a heartbeat
Each drum is a soul
Where they will go is a matter of fate
And only Juha will know

And on his time working
Itís a spiritual meditation for the man
The primitive art and craftsmanship
Is a mystical journey for a shaman

By some grand design
The universe guides his hand
Even figure, shape and pattern
Has a transcendental plan

Perhaps this is where some paths will cross
As he makes drums for 1100 souls
Those seeking a connection
That only Juha will know
