White World ©

Nat Hall
Sandwick, Shetland
2004

Double-glazed show!
Melting snow
flakes slide on
the glass -
life looks fuzzy through
my window.
Crowds of crystals
swept by cold air,
I imagine
ten polar bears
in search of seals
and arctic hares (!)
white world
wandering through
our land.

Richard's totem
stands to the gales -
ram skulls kiss snow;
they face northwards to
coldest winds
in stubbornness.
Starlings queue up
to seek shelter
behind low trees...
the seeds of spring play
hide and seek -
even our sheep try
to keep warm!


Richard's Totem - 25th February 2004
