Fire and Ice Needles: Dawn, Hustai National Park, Mongolia

ice needles at dawn n

Stalked a group of stag red deer

up a draw to the top of a rise 

where the sun broke fiery and cold

lighting feather grass and ice needles

suspended in the negative something air.

Along the ridge, winter-hard antlers

lit with sunlight

scattered into the dawn.
