Abstract Realism in Photography 3

Turtle Creek floodplain, Wisconsin



a week ago two feet of snow on the ground
now two days of summer weather
everything melts, runs into the river
swollen banks overflooding
bridge underpass iceclogged
ground still frozen



lines of deadbranch trees flooded
reflecting in water's dusk mirror
tracing black parentheses over ice



lines, shapes, triangles
easy to see the fractal geometry of nature
reflecting



as the river flows on
icefloes jammed together, buckling up
break out, melt, clump

till the icedam breaks and runs
till winter returns, undone
