Hike up the Blue Hills /
to find gravity still felt /
by a frozen stream

(Notes: A warm January day today — enough to make for an interesting mix of frozen and liquid. The Blue Hills hiking trail (red markers) travels over several large boulders, leading to all kinds of play with flowing water. I had been playing with the contrast between “up” and “down” in the haiku, couldn’t get it to work, and settled on “gravity” as a better option to “down” anyway. Might be able to get a little more mileage out of “frozen stream”, maybe building up to it more, but you’ve got to stop somewhere…)
