Spinning, Gliding, and Dancing on Ice

The ice dance only happens in the frostiness of winter. 'Neath a sky of blue or haze of gray, a blanket of white covers an autumn landscape of summer past and spring to come. Ponds and lakes lie in a chill of silence. The skaters gather at the edge. 

 

Suddenly the sound of the skate bites the ice as the grind cracks the silence. The skaters glide and spin joyful circles across their frozen stage. Some skate in solemn thought while others crack the whip with glee.  Then like the sun upon the earth, the lovers dance, radiating their warmth and devotion arm in arm, heart to heart.

The "First Good Freeze" is eagerly sought,

by those anxious for what winter brought . . .

A "January" day

cold and clear;

Shall we take a skate,

"Winter's Gift" we do so love,

blade to ice, like 

hand in glove . . .

A "Lone Skater"  sometimes

I am,

spinning in thoughts, reflecting

upon my life so grand . . .

"A Skater's Delight"  of emotions

comes over me,

when snowfall comes and a

Skater's Romance

Love blossoms on the blade of a skate . . .

"Ice Dancers" embrace, then

spin and spin,

with skates across ice as an arco

on a fine violin . . .

the barren earth becomes

a canvas for our art . . .

lunar delight,

the cosmic stars in a purple haze

of night . . .
