It's not what you look at, it's what you see.

I used to think that it only took took took.

As the ice moved in, I noticed how it

Crushed petals

Silenced lakes

Muted color


Now I realize that ice also gives gives gives.

I see how it

Builds bridges

Forms connections

Creates stillness


We do not always welcome winter, but

Earth, she knows best

As most mothers do


She gifted us winter

Wrapped in sparkles and frost

The cold - electric to our fingers -

Recharges our hearts

Just in time

For spring
