On Ice

sunset ice


Her dreams have been


flash-frozen tears,

harbingers of pain. But

finger to vein

finds pulse flutters

still – when her dawn

rises, rivers

will flow freely

once more, quenching

her winter soul.

      Its just the effect of the wind! We had a few harshly windy days, carving the patterns you see – and then it melted on top in places, and was partially buried under a layer of fresh snow. Amazing living art! There is actually manicured grass under there, so there is nothing about the ground itself that would cause the snow to lie in such a pattern – it isn’t cultivated land or anything. Wild and wonderful!

    A very clever way of saying winter will be over soon.
