ice lines

wound off the skein onto cardstock
ready for weaving.
 landskeins iced over
 ice broken
 warming ice
 plant lines
 old grasses
 ice fissure
 big ice becoming stream
the outlet from trout lake 
view from the road.
alder cones illuminated 
ever so little.
 ice outlet
 letting go the water
 leaving an ice gown
 the snow, the ice, the changes this winter
from 27 below to 60 above.
and today, an ice driveway.
 sweet setter gwen is saying goodbye, little by little
here and not so much
like the ice.

beautiful reflections on the beauty of the cold in your north country bound with the bittersweet of letting go

india, thank you. your words came in whilst i struggled mightily to complete a NYS grant application, i may have uttered an oath or two all the while.

Glorious ice and snow meditation right to the Petticoat of tree root. How delicate your expression of Gwens fading. Love to you and to the receding ice as well as dear Gwen

Beautiful poem of a post. Expecting those trees draped in flowing crystal frocks to slide across the ice together in a winter dance. (spent a piece of today looking at a book on the Arctic-loving the polar bears & ice).
