  • After ceaseless pounding of white from the sky
    Lovely in pictures but relentless, live
    Now that it’s over, all’s quietly frozen
    Into my hot cauldron on the tundra I dive
  • This is the time that I have worked for
    All of the digging and struggle now done
    At least for this moment, just relax, melt and breathe
    In this pristine frozen moonlit predawn.
  • Soak for an hour, easing aches in the hip
    Read inspiration, on my kindle and surround
    So lovely is nature and the best part of all
    So quiet the world, the most lovely of sounds.
