The Great, Slow Thaw

April 22, 2018

There was ice and hard snow before any sign of melting.

And then more ice and pools of hope,

surrounded by softer and more fragile gatherings of white.

It’s not the cold that is infuriating as much as it’s unpredictable duration.

How much longer before how much change?

Movement is a necessity and not an option.

So banks and piles are measured not by weight but the rate of disappearance,

when all that is needed is the patience

to stay present and absorb what is

offered during the

great, slow

thaw.
