open water

with a gentler winter
the river has open water


water
that holds the memories
of clouds and trees


in its
slowly
drifting
body

Beautiful COLD pictures. The fishes have wishes for spring, they must be so still in that winter water.

Makes one wonder what are we reflecting and who or what is reflecting us?

There is something unspeakably attractive about a river, it's reassuring when uncovered in Spring (better yet never iced over).

Thank you for your comment today! I posted a reply...

Steven this is just amazing! I can read so much into this piece about life, transition, even dying. It offers peace and comfort for all those. This is one I will go back to read time and again!

Really like 'slowly drifting body' and the photos are gorgeous. I especially like the bottom one, there's something destabilising about it.

Beautiful photos & the reference to "the memories". Spring is arriving soon!
