Green and waterfall

#Poem – zero

In-between, there is that temperature:
Frozen water begins to drip
And liquid water begins to freeze.

Whatever its state, the water
Does not anticipate the change.
It simply flows or hardens

As the in-between requires
Of it. As if it were an artist
Responding to inspiration,

The ice or fluid begins to take
On the newness of this change
Initiated by the in-between.

This is the spontaneity of water;
That it would be ready at any moment
To shift from liquid to solid

And back again.
