Ski Writing














Winter with long slow nights & short fast days

Winter with razorblade skis & frozen faces

Winter with chalkwhite hills & bloodred skies

Winter with tracks to make, snow to shovel


With overflowing clouds & an empty heart

With patience & with silence

With crystal tears & velvet drifts

With waistdeep powder & blue ice


& winter’s hoarfrost clues

& winter’s white telegrams

& winter’s icicle laughter

& winter’s pale perfection
