Wild Verses: Bits of Nature Poetry, 1 of 10

From my poem “If I Had Known,” finished April 2013:

How could I think ice is anything but alive, 
be duped by the same deception as living coral,
calcifying architecture, fanned like some ghost
town cascading down the hillside, fixed in place
but all the while eating, growing, breeding?
