Poetry from Doryn Herbst “Huskies”

Huskies

Double fur to pull them through
a snow desert. That snow in their eyes,
pools of moonstone and gold
arrowed against the cold.

Muscled team-players, a playful team,
best of friends, your best friend.
Six Siberians howling.

These loyal workers know how to pull.
They gather speed over drifts packing
down close, their weight harnessed
to glide in unison over ice-cold air, slide
over frigid rivers, leap past trees
like starch-white spectres

to carry your weight
to your destination.
