Ice


beautiful and fragile
glistening in the sunlight
it appears so strong
so solid
covering water below

rushing and racing
speeding past the surface
eroding the ground
fighting the ice
trying to escape

pressure and stress
a single footstep or
the shift of a weight
cracking the ice
exposing the turmoil

seeping and spreading
leaking out of control
until the strong cold
regains its icy hold
water again settles
to ice
