Lake Michigan Ice
All the long night west winds roar
boom icy shrapnel on the shores:
cannonballs fly, bounce, roll, clatter
ice on ice crunch, bash, shatter.
Curled green walls of glassy jade
smash on pack ice wave on wave
tremble out high icy plumes
fans of white peacock
Waves slap hands, gleeful high fives
slam dance back—twist, leap, dive.
Hard daggers dazzle caves of ice—
a crevice opens then
closes like a vice.
