I Was North


Yesterday I went on a journey to the far north

I strapped on rubber boots. I laid a hat upon my head. I lined my fingers with warmth. I held my knife in “Ready” position.

What I found was truly beautiful. What I found was terrifying.

Ice capped ridges and gushing eddies

I could not walk straight. Excitement and fear yanked me left then right.

 

I was overcome by the fire at my fingertips. A frozen fire.
