Random Poem:

Squaw Valley
Andiam

Clear blue above me  
 1
Soft powder below  
 2
Pure white that shines upon me  
 3
Radiant sun warms my skin  
 4
The cool wind breathes  
 5
    
 6
I tread cautiously for mere seconds  
 7
Then suddenly attack  
 8
Cutting my path down your side  
 9
Cut left, cut right  
 10
Fear, denied  
 11
    
 12
You push me down  
 13
Your plush depths cushion my fall  
 14
I get back up, unscathed  
 15
No bruises to show  
 16
No confidence lost  
 17
    
 18
Once again I make my way  
 19
Down your valley wide  
 20
Feeling freedom  
 21
Feeling strength  
 22
Savoring the power that numbs me
 23
