Ice-skating rink, Plaza de Armas, Zacatecas, México

festive afternoon
round and round the skaters glide
church bells stun the air
~~ ~~ ~~
church bells stun the air
graceful skaters skimming ice
vibrantly alive
~~ ~~ ~~
vibrantly alive
relishing the glaring ice
round and round they go
~~ ~~ ~~
round and round they go
while misty-eyed grandparents
remember their youth
