Like snow slowly melting // Soaking into the ground. // Nourishing // but frozen and slow. // Slow drip // Quick to grip. Make it faster. // I want it all, all at once. // but no. // // It will sink deeper the slower it goes. // it will be on reserve like a good wine you will pull out to start something all over again. // It will feed and intoxicate us // When it floods through the streams in the spring.
