White Bears Red Snakes

white bears on white
snow and blue ice
hunger for black
seals with black eyes
on green ice
and white snow
ice melts
islands appear
and floes
down streams
between the rifts
of the archipelago
south toward ship
lanes where steam
bellows and screws
torque toward green
land and brown land
in the west
green-blue parrots
shriek in dark jungles
where snakes
between black
as they shed
red skin

I like the repetition and although it slightly changes somewhat, it all interlinks. You have a very distinctive way of writing that puts a stamp on what you have written,showing that the words have come from your pen.
That's what I like.
