River Ice

Fish dead,
turtle dead,
ice the price,
morning walk,
silence,
hear the still,
gripped in ice,
river of life,
river of death,


shiver,
cosy warm,
life suspended,
life ended,
disease and decay,
now its melting,
releasing those within,
to float freely,
settle some place,


mold and rot,
take hold,
cells atoms,
to break and release,
return to the river,
of life and death,
a cycle,
group and ungroup,
come together,
then separate,
release,
summer to winter,
ice to water.
