Crash Landing

Snowball red
Burns past trees
Icy ski slope
Steep

 
A hidden hill
Weightless air
I soar, landing
Deep

 
Staring up
Blue sky
A calm quiet
Sleep
 
Waking hands
Rescue warm
Burning ice
Weeps
 
Skin pink
Raw alive
Do you miss the ski
Heat?

 
The rush of flight
Succumbs to snow
I miss that quiet
Keep

This poem came from reflections on rushing through life- is it really those fast adrenaline-filled flights we will look back on? Though I have enjoyed fast downhill runs, sometimes those quiet moments where we can’t do anything (trapped in snow) bring a unique and deep calm.
