Alternative Text Poetry

I read an article about creating poetry for alternative text on images and really liked the idea, as often the images are difficult to describe and the reason for me making them are visceral so for equity of experience poetry seems the best approach. Without further ado. This is the alternative text poem for the images above:


Cold light
Fighting its way
Through cotton-soft snow clouds
A blue speck of sky
Plays peekaboo
Thistle seedpod-skeletons
Become bizarre antlers
Carrying the sun in-between
Mist sinks down from above
The fields are wearing fragile down blankets
The canal is frozen over
There is no wind
Snow muffles all noise
As I walk through eerie silence
Barr the crunch of my shoes in frozen snow
