Winter Dreams

DSC_0737

 

It’s winter in the Great Land and the days are dwarfed by nights

The skies are lit by dancing, crackling Northern Lights

The river ice is snapping like beasts bustin’ through the timber

The cold cuts through my joints, they are much more stiff than limber

The fluttering aurora catch stars in a mesh of green

My thoughts start to wander as I survey the scene

The longer days of summer now compose my dreams

With visions of the sockeye’s return to natal streams

Nets flung across the water like these lights across this sky

Salmon hang like stars, flashing silver sides

The days are getting longer and soon I will be

Out there on the Inlet, rocking on the sea

But it’s still winter in the Great Land and the days are dwarfed by nights

Tho the skies are lit by dancing, crackling Northern Lights
