Sleeping in Poetry – A Night in an Ice Hotel

Why would you sleep in an ice hotel?

Why would you sleep in an ice hotel?
Because it is beautiful.
Because it is like sleeping in art. And waking with poetry.

Or perhaps my weakness for the colour blue is just getting out of hand…

Disclosure – I visited the Ice Hotel Sweden as a guest of Discover the World, the only UK company to offer direct flights from London to Kiruna, skipping the usual stopover in Stockholm. All views, photos and dreams about poetry remain my own. As ever. As always.

I too have a weakness for the color blue and would love the ice hotel for that reason. But I am sure there would be other reasons as well! Beautiful images, Abi!

    Yes! The words are coming! But – sigh – I just love the pictures so much!
