meltwater: 5 views


ice and snow dissolve
a slow return to the source
sunlight caught inside


cold glass stalactites
dripping away to the earth
my ancient spirit


winter is heavy
a pane of glass cold and white
breath held in blue air


memories of loss
weighted limbs bowed and broken
sole hibernation


this dawn of new spring
sight and sound of glistening thaw
meltwater at last
