Harshest Corners

Walking on snow that
packs with an audible
crsh
crish
crsh
with each step.
As though you ought to be taking
a look around
understanding your environment
bracing for the worst.
Standing mid-lake while great cracks
form in previously considered ‘thick enough’ ice
just below your feet.

There is a beauty to it
the winter.
The soft white blanket overtakes
many of the world’s harshest corners
but like the thought of that cracking ice
you never feel
all that safe.
