The Ice Went Out Today

Twilight ascends bringing on 
bright rays that reflect
ice crystals into the
eyes of the geese-

that come swooping in with
the seasons change,
marking the 
calendar.

Putting on breaks like an
airliner on a runway, 
geese land on a 
field of ice-

still floating between
currents, rippling 
the surface of 
open water.

Never mind the open lake waters
it is more fun to walk on ice,
flapping wings to
the tune of the
chickadee-

grabbing the branchlet 
with cold feet, as the
lake hums
low.

The ice went out today.
