I will never forget the beauty of the Canadian Arctic...

the edge of earth


frozen lands


hungry soul


where time stands


 


sounds of silence


arctic light


crow’s nest vigil


through the night


 


grinding steel hulls


polar beer’s growl


silver fox


hunter’s prowl


 


engines roar


turbines whine


ice gives way


passage time


 


where Franklin roamed


on Beechy Isle


lingered there


lonely mile


 


fresh food gone


books are rare


tempers short


no TV here


 


five long months


craving home


on our way


no more to roam

Felix, I could feel the artic chill as I read this. I kept expecting to have to move the snow to see the next word.
Awesome imagery Felix!

The will of the human spirit to endure and explore never ceases to surprise and excite me, Felix. Even apart from the chill - I am such a heat-seeking missile! - I am drawn into the stark images you paint in this "white-out" and can almost hear the creaking and grinding of ice and metal, and smell and taste the fuel of the turbines in that thin, razor-sharp air. TY for this fresh sight and sound. Kate xx

I've always thought the Arctic must be an amazing place. Your work brings it to life.

Sometimes I like to read something different in poems just to refresh me and I am glad that I read this one.
