Ice by Mary
Photo by Mary at Poets United

She looked within the cold block

Beginning with one chip at a time

Stopping momentarily to take stock

Progressing to cut away the chunks


Vision carried her through the process

From the start, the ice and she were one

Never doubting her artistic success

For within that piece of ice, she saw Spring

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Oh, this is lovely! I really like what you did with my photo. I like the artist’s perspective. And, through your words, if I squint my eyes, I can almost see spring in the ice sculpture… Smiles!
