Arctic Dance


photo by author ©



midnight


and to the north

a dogged sun still burns

loath to shed her blazing harness


and to the south

a pale and thwarted moon now yearns

for her lover’s cloak of darkness


and I


I hold

the middle


in this boundless arctic tundra

where I’ll make my bed

for a night that will not come


so here I stand


to celebrate and dance


forever turning circles

turning circles

drunk

in infinite embrace

of moon and sun

and never-ending light
