silent ice.

The ice that was frozen on the tree branches above
is now falling steadily on my roof.
Looking out the window,
I couldn't imagine it was snow-
even if I squinted my eyes;
It's falling too fast and harsh.

It has a pretty feel to it,
the ice seems unkind in my perspective.

The ice is laying on the ground
dead and still.
large chunks fall from the trees,
breaking the silence.

The silence of ice.

Hey, this is great! It made me remember a joke/pick-up-line: How much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice...
