What Have We Here?
Water, solid on twigs,
liquid in the lake;
both places below 32°.
Two cold places.
Equally beautiful, one in motion
one still, a motionless twig and branch skin.
Icicles take time,
a liquid droplet on liquid droplet.
What have we here?
The time of solid and liquid.
Visible signs of the breath of God.
“The breath of God produces ice, and the broad waters become frozen.” Job 37:10
