Walking on Water


on the first day of the year
we walked
on frozen water


this narrow canyon
is actually a creek
under this snow
is ice
and under the ice
is flowing water
we could hear it singing 
as it wandered downstream


our journey took us
to frozen waterfalls
with trees high above


the waterfalls had space to walk behind them


a bit magical to experience


water still flowed here and there
adding to the artful forms of ice


after shared snacks and drinks
we turned and wandered back
through the crevice
across another creek
up through a snowy forest
and 
to our cars

 
a wonderful way to begin 
2017

  3. You're talking seriously cold and some hard core walking! Makes my puny little ditch walk look even punier! But this is totally magnificent. I would be filled with awe. And very cold.
