WRITING ON SNOW

The sun on snow looks like glossy paper Rolled out in endless sheets With my skis I sketch and write in zigzag letters Long and flowing are my verses The wind in hot pursuit, forging my lines Intricate patterns I draw on snow I discern a hidden meaning in all of my musings The cold burning my words into flowing sheets Holding a promise for the future that seems like a tiny tip writing effortlessly with swaying motion In the distant horizon I see two fellow skiers Writing stories in different languages Drawing parallels in shades of constant flow I follow the light shining deep in my core. 23.4.2021 Sponsor: Brian Strand Contest: All Yours April '24.

Hi Carol!, Congrats on POTD! Well deserved! I never thought about comparing skiing to writing verse in the snow or other skiiers' tracks as verse in other languages, but you did that so wonderfully. Keep your poems coming.
