morning pause at paxton creek



click,

car locked,


rush.


gravel,

parking lot mud-mix on blue boots,

macadam bike path,

slush,

crisped leaf,

snow pack,

rabbit tracks,

Paxton Creek

underfoot,

underbridge

ice-melt slicked wooden planks,

slowed step,


pause


pull


“look.”


green water,

viscous,

unhurried,

wind-blown oak leaf cartwheels across ice-skin,


hush.


sleeping,

creek bed cradle,

bridge shelter,


humbled witness.
