MELTING SMOLENKA

MELTING  SMOLENKA


Sun higher and days brighter,
Miracle blessing of the sun god  -
Hard  hearts  melt :
A cold coming but a warm arrival.

Funeral for old ice floes
Moving slowly hesitantly
Nudging into each other gently
Like a crowd at a graveside gathering.

Flat geometric white sheets,
Darker thinner as death approaches.
Life’s  jigsaw undone.
Rigid white bodies shrivel,
Transformed from stillness  to moving life.

Cold soul of the ice dies,
Garbage stains disappear;
Baptism of new flows,
River is reborn of water warm.

……………………………………………………………………………………………….
Note
If you stand on the bridge over the Smolenka at this time of year  you 
will see this, as the river melts.
