Ice Breaker

Droplets of snow twinkle and collide
like stars falling to earth
It is a frosty wasteland
where dreams careen across the sky
in lights arcing blue and green

Tundra fur, pale as powdered sugar
thick neck rising to sniff air
sensing, searching
over white crests and crystal peaks

Ice-breaker, faith-maker
sledgehammer pawed
punching holes in frozen arena
Ice-breaker, ground-shaker

Meat grabbed between jaws
slick and savoury
settle down to eat
ponder the old joke
about how much you weigh
