Fire & Ice

I thought this would make an appropriate first blog entry.  When there is a change in air pressure (like just before or during snow, rain, etc.), my symptoms flare up (pain, disorientation…).  In January we had a some storms with snow and ice.  The inspiration for this poem came when I was eating breakfast in front of our glass patio doors.  I saw our neighbour’s tree, covered in ice, with the sunlight shining upon it in the most spectacular way.  It looked like diamonds, but I have also seen this effect result in what looks like silver fire.  So, sometimes in order for something wonderful to come into existence, it can be necessary to pass through something unpleasant.

After the storm

after the pain

    I’m glad you’ve decided to blog too! Now we can catch up more often with what’s happening with each other. I’m looking forward to more of your introspections on life and all things in general!

    That is very beautiful. I think that we come to appreciate the wonderful moments in life more, by knowing what it is like to feel pain. It at least applies to myself, in the brief but joyful occasions of my life I never take anything for granted. (I also feel unwell when there is a change in pressure, or cold weather)
