Carpe Diem Haiku – ice skating

Stockholm has one of the best ice-skating conditions around the world, and good years we can skate most of January, February and March. There are years when you can go an skates far out in the archipelago, but most years we can at least skate on the water we have 10 minutes from where we live. To go up a Saturday morning, and know that you have the possibility to do a quick round-trip, or even take the skates all the way into town is truly one of the best things about living in Stockholm.

  1. How amazing to live in a such a climate. Your haiku really transports me to a world I can visit only through imagination.

  2. Beautiful, Bjorn! I did a lot of skating when I was a child, but haven’t done it now…in years. Stockholm sounds like a skaters’ paradise.

  3. How most lucky to be blessed! We can only wonder as we lack snows. But all is not lost as there are now indoor skating rings that youngsters can have fun at. Certainly it is not the same as in the open though! Great write Bjorn!
