When ice melts and bursts forth
To create a small brook.
Which trips and tumbles down mountain
Tumbling over sharp rocks and stones.
Does the ice ever dreams she will move?
Conquer so many difficulties and pain
Cover such a long journey
Through mountains, plains, forests.
Will turn into a river changing through
Sometimes in the journey its shallow, fast
Sometimes it is deep and slow
Just a chunk of ice taking so many forms.
From an immovable piece of frozen ice
It turns into liquid crystal, ever flowing
Creating, destroying, nurturing, forever moving,
To finally meet its destiny, ocean and lose itself within.
