Delicate Shapes

 

Brown fields, gold fields

evergreens, tall dead grasses

entirely frost sharpened

The north sides vividly, thickly white

starkly defined

yet

delicately shaped

Freezing north wind blows

clumps of ice covered plant life

fluidly

Ice Surprise

 

Walked on the snowy sidewalk

Yesterday

Left deep white footprints

Coming and going

Later snow melted a little

But not much before

Temperatures dropped again

Walked out today and found

My old footprints

Preserved perfectly

Encased in ice

Ice casts

So amazingly cool
