Icicles: A Poem

Updated on February 24, 2014

Frozen ice daggers,

Suspended in air,

Useless, dangling, waiting,

Once free liquid,

Now paused in motion,

Lingering until spring,

Dripping with anticipation,

To dissolve into original form.

      Nicely done and simply neat. I was thinking of the earth's water cycle this morning and here comes this creative look at icicles. :)

      They sure are pretty, but also so dangerous!

      Monis Mas: Yes, very dangerous! It would be awful if they fell on someone.
