Breaking Through

Longing for spring

by Joanne Troppello

I break through

shattering the ice with my head.

The cold water releases

me and I can breathe.

Breathe a frigid

blast when all I long for is a

calming breeze.

I pull myself up from

the hole, bare skin facing

the elements.

I look toward the forest,

naked of leaves,

while a tear sneaks out of my

eye only to freeze

on my cheek

and I long for Spring

when my ice will melt.
