There are so many things you can say about them…hard, cold, difficult to reach, fickle as to when they arrive and when they leave. Showing up with a slow drip, drip, drip and then harden with the cold…and as quickly as they arrive, they return to their dripping or slide down with a crash to the ground to return once again to the earth.
OR…you can look at them with wonder and see the their simple beauty. The reflection of the sun creating prisms of light from the hanging ice. Sharing their not so simple beauty with all who are willing to pause and see. Showing up in places not expected ready and willing to give their individual treasure! Allowing us the opportunity to appreciate and recognize all the changes that each individual drop of water had to go through to become what is before you…
And then, to see with child like eyes…the wonder of the icicle, the pleasure of a big brother or a friend throwing snowballs in the effort to loosen their grasp on the roof…so that one can enjoy the pure taste of fresh, cold ice on their tongue.
Rather like people these icicles…what kind of icicle are you?
