is there anybody
out there?
the tundra calls
a hiss, then a crackle
in deepening vast silence
midnight sun
glints on an ice-skating
polar bear
on the move
through singing canyons
glaciers melt
already, heat radiates this
pristine wilderness
savage moonscape
a fox barks, signal
to the hollow night

A solo ekphrastic rengay by Barbara A. Taylor, of Australia, inspired by a photograph taken on the arctic island of Svalbard, part of the series "Artic Technology", from the self-titled website of photographer Christian Houge: http://www.soulfood.no/index.html.
