Ice

In awe, the forest bows down, partly from fascination and half from the heavy gift you carry.

Shining and dispersing little rainbows onto rock walls like crystals when sunlight greets you, you’re magnificent.

Though your beauty for you is effortless , growing and glittering all through winter, keeping you at bay is indefinite work.

You’re a hungry creature that aims to freeze all that surrounds it, morphing all that once was green and soft into your brethren, cold and careless.

Growing evermore with changing of the seasons, you dangle and poke at the ground.

Angry that your time to be gone has come, you allow yourself to soak the earth, creating puddles and slippery mischief where you choose.
