out in the archipelango
 
 
our breakfast hesitated
our stomachs disagreed
to start the day with
grey clouds and wind
 
we skated until the
border of the black ice
mirroring small islands
and clearing skye
 
all of us dreamt
crossing straight
over the black plain
forgetting about fear
 
with long strokes we
skated sailing in
the strong western wind
on wings of fate
 
in a hideous corner
suddenly ulrika fell
red blood on white snow
she didn’t say a word
of pain before sturdily
she went on pale and plastered
 
the last clouds left
heaven to a red sun
between the far isles
spots of horizon
filled our minds
with a sense of freedom
and endless space

 

 

Back on black ice

Eagerly we got out
In early morning
To fulfill our last day
Outward bound

The low sun sent
Orange beams over
The shining surface
Our feet didn’t hesitate

Our aches and pains
Were forgotten
As we danced
As swans on the sea

Until the edge
Of the open sea
We skated and
Wondered how thick the ice

The surface had frozen
This night under
Bright stars after
Our hot sauna

Over dinner we
Had discovered
Closeness common pleasure
And old comradeship

Just when our minds
Touched heaven the ice
Broke and the cold water
Tried to pull me down

The swift rescue
Changed drama for
A nice story :
Swedish skating adventure
