Bitter Cold

As the grand lake’s
winter waves
peek over the land
in its flow,
the bitter cold holds
to make glorious icicles, 
separating a portion
that’s slowly developing
into ice boulders or
swirling ice sculptured hills.

Within a few weeks
the strength of sun
calls the ice to retreat.

It slowly melts itself down
and ebbs back again
from where
its fullness released.
