Iced Design (Repost January 2017)

Water froze over night
And with a sunset
Autumn had left
And winter walked in
And the ground
Encased in layers of ice
Took on its second life
Ripples of lines
Thin cracked edges
Branched and crisscrossed
Until a portrait formed
Battled and bruised
Violently created
Shaded with squealing wheels
And pounding feet
Yet with every broken line
A beautiful design took its place
