The Cold Comes Crawling Up the Creek

The cold comes crawling up the creek
serpentine in its slow methodical building
like steam made of ice
the winter rises from the water in wisps

Serpentine in its crawling
the cold of freezing water
great icicles hang from the exposed rock
jagged pointing fingers
