Breaking The Ice

It needs strength to break the ice
when it’s frozen as solidly as
Or so I thought.

It needs strength to break the ice,
to break the mould and
Or so I thought.

But just suppose,
the ice gives up it’s power
and allows the colour 
to break through, bright
so the delicate flowers can form,
can bloom, can flourish fragile.
Will they then open up
through the self shattered ice,
and melt the frozen silence
to make a space,
an opening
for a warmth,
that will shatter
the now thinning ice?
