A blue dream

A clear blue winter sky

Lends its colour to the ice beneath my feet.

My furry friend and I

Dance on sapphires

In the early morning light.

    As a child, when I finally mastered the stride and stroke. Often while skating I dream’t of skating away. I believe I just did in this photograph. Thank You!
