ice freeze

ice has come
through my window
creating otherworldly
paintings on the glass
as it creeps in from
the cold searching
for my breath so
it can enter my body
and freeze me to death


i stand alone
on a sheet of ice
looking for an horizon
any sign of life
but there is nothing
just a never ending
ocean of ice
that meets the sky
far away from
where i stand
alone on the ice

ice sings

the ice is singing
enchanting me with
its glacial resonance
from a frozen pipe organ
drawing me ever
closer to its jaws
where it will trap me
suffocate me
squeeze the very
last breath out
of me as it sings
a funeral song
and takes me
to my death

ice heart

At my poetry writing group last night the theme was ice. This poem started off as one thing and ended up as something else. One of those poems that just happened and went where it wanted to. I was just the messenger writing it.

my heart is as white
as the purest ice
warm blood flows in
turning to a pillar of ice
slowly moving through my
heart like a glacier
creating a valley
from the hardest stone
sometimes the ice snaps
off causing my heart
to jump as if hit
by a heavyweight boxer
before settling back to
its imperceptible movement
that i barely notice
a heart rate that barely
registers as my breathing
slows down i’m showing
no signs of life
except an icy cold
glint in my eye


 

the ice came in from the outside

in through the gaps in the window frames

squeezing through the lead and the glass

to create other worldly patterns

to cold to touch, breath froze on them

they drew you in with their sparkling patterns

of swirls. spirals and curls, meandering everywhere

the milky way, andromeda, sombrero, appear

an interstellar transformation of ice crystals

expanding right before your eyes

a billion sparkling stars living

on your bedroom window

mesmerising, enchanting

unique, beautiful

and then gone

as quickly as they came
