Abstraction

March snowfall in West Juneau as of 3/16: 77.2"
Season to date: 229.9"

Today, while Geoff skate-skied a few laps around the campground, I went for a walk on Mendenhall Lake. I made up a few haiku poems while I was out there.


They protested war
Message obscured through cold glass
Smiling and waving

Walking on the lake
Where white is the one constant
And variable

This vacant landscape
Beauty that could make you cry
And yet feel nothing

Mood rollercoaster
I didn't buy this ticket
I just sat in back
