Winter Melts Away

I happened to have the good fortune while in downtown Detroit to witness nature at its finest.  At the edge of the Riverwalk promenade I watched in awe as all sizes of jagged blocks of ice floated down the Detroit River herding in a new spring season.  Watching the ice float by was mesmerizing and the accompanying gurgle sound effects were an added bonus.

Ice chunks on the river
past midday
spring rain from above
drizzling upon my head
gurgling ice floats by
washing away winter's bite
in hopes of spring from dawn to night.

Here's a moment of zen; you deserve it.
