“Ice Flow” by Steve Geer

Photograph “Ice Flow” from the series “River Ice” by Steve Geer

Ice Flow

An unseen arrow wind moves stealthy flow whilst polygons of ice creep upon the dark body

of a creaking river.

Sprinkled talcum white these frosty shards numb with winter’s time break crisp silence

with rasping chatter.

Sun-kissed jigsaws withering with age a shuffled pack of shapes like the pieces of a life

in memories melting cells.
