on a winter's day

Updated: Jan 19, 2022

January 10 - January 14


a cold north wind skates across

the lake waltzing with falling snow

creating dizzying works of art

as the sun-warmed ice begins to send

songs of an unseen bullroarer out beneath

the feet of foxes finding frozen shortcuts

Sounds of Lakes in Winter, echo what the grey sky may say on Sundays.

Peace and quorum.

Bethe and Bruce, you both inspired me to revise this poem along with the deep resonating sounds that I heard rising up from the lake.

This is possibly the most important image for me among all you have sent. I see shapes of bullroarers in the ice, created by wind stretching a circle. Just yesterday, someone sent me a somewhat similar picture and claimed it was an interdimensional transmission of bullroarers. It looked too familiar to me, and I could not keep an open mind. . .but couldn’t figure out why. Here your photo comes today!

Bethe you hit the nail on the head! I was tried in vane to describe the energy I was seeing in the ice. I may have to do a revision of this poem! I always love getting your interpretations!
