Beauty Day 170 Spring Breakup of the River Ice

Every year in the north country 

comes a day when river ice breaks up

it’s a day of celebration dancing singing

flowing good cheer

and it should be

because life continues

moves on to fuller days ahead

little did I know

as I lay sick and motionless

for nearly two weeks

that the ice pack was melting

and fissures deep within

perhaps because of stillness

with little outward stimulation

I had time to hear and could hear

the deeps within me creaking groaning

and finally the ice began to break

and so it begins again

new life new commerce

good cheer and miles of new roads up ahead

in short

paralysis died

after so many years

the bathroom is on its way

to getting some fix

and who know where that will lead?

what pray tell comes next?
