Delicate Shapes


Brown fields, gold fields

evergreens, tall dead grasses

entirely frost sharpened

The north sides vividly, thickly white

starkly defined


delicately shaped

Freezing north wind blows

clumps of ice covered plant life



Ice Surprise


Walked on the snowy sidewalk


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
