White Out

With all the snow and freezing temperatures, this just seems fitting.  Some of you may wonder why I post audios of my poems to which I give you my favorite quote: 

"To read a poem is to hear it with our eyes to hear it is to see it with our ears."
Octavio Paz

Sharing, 'White Out' - I was trying to recreate the disorientation felt in the middle of white out conditions.

White Out

Tangled in the
light of snow

The glare of shrill
ice lamina
promptly blinds

The silent roar
of an absent
wind deafens

As you drown in
the emptiness of
vacant space
