a walk on the ides

a walk on the ides 

from the bridge we watched

        the kids and I   a shard
of a hard winter    a facet of
a floe   breaching the roil
& roll on
in its drift beneath us
past chapters
of time
      pages worn of edge
and towering 
       above submerged flats
a thing to be 
read
      once thaw completed
its shift
& the creek catches its breath
when the
sun centers itself
above the gorge
        & snakes take to rocks
        midstream
