Crystal blue ice, delicate and pristine.
Chandeliers and daggers,
Icicles bigger than your body!
To approach this frozen waterfall
and then interact with it
finding grooves to dig in a tool
tiny ledges to plant spikes
of crampon feet and so make
your way up higher, along the
steep frozen smoothness
to find the place where the slope
eases back and the ice turns flat
like the pond where you learned to skate
and first felt the fun of ice.
