Breath of Life

(inspired by the Upside Down exhibit at the Menil Collection)

The cold beauty of snow

fills the enormous Arctic.

The lit-up sun glistens

in the snow.  I fall down

in the angel-white snow.

Lost somewhere in the snow

I hear the beautiful snow owls

hooting.  It’s so relaxing being

upside down in the breath

of life.
