Walden Ice?

I am waiting.

snow on sandwater...ice?

snow on sand
water…ice?

 

 

 

 

 

 

One time I was told Walden doesn’t freeze until January.

So I go,

noticing all the shallow ponds on the roadside as I drive route 128 to route 2.

Skins frozen, sprinkled and fringed with snow.

Wondering what Walden will look like…                IMG_5239

 

Today, 2013 blew in from the middle of the pond.

The wind, her depth, 110 feet, keep her running thawed into a snowy shore.

Water rushing home to shore talking.

Incessant talking.

 

Walking on snow on sand.

Wondering what walking on Walden water on ice

would be like…?

would be safe/unsafe…?

 

Ice and sand and froth and bubbles and stone

And alone a snowman guide/guard?

 

I don’t recognize the pond I swim in.

Winter playing tricks on me.

sand and stone and froth and bubblei don't recognize the pond i swim in

sand and stone and froth and bubble
i don’t recognize the pond i swim in
