Fire and Ice Photography: Month Poem -- February

Sometimes, a poem is either masculine or feminine; this one is feminine.  It came easily in 2007, while taking a walk in sub-zero temperatures.   The sun was out brightly, but a bitter cold wind drove away any warmth. The first line, "The bloodless heart of winter" popped into my head, and the rest soon followed.  However, the poem presented a rather challenging word picture.  A few years later, in Harbor Springs I saw what I was looking for. Conditions created a scene on Little Traverse Bay where "bold adventures" did indeed risk a dangerous caress."  An arctic blast had flash frozen the bay.  The ice was crystal clear, and where deep enough, ice boaters and skaters said it was like being suspended over a black abyss.
