This is one of a series of poems that are the result of asking people from various disciplines and countries for their words for dark in preparation for a mixed media presentation at a conference in 24-hour winter darkness on Svalbard.
Catherine Faulds is a poet and artist who finds inspiration in cold places. She has travelled to the Antarctic and, recently, to the Arctic.
