fire on ice

from an unyielding sky
her resolute race west paused
her fire dances across
the melting ice

her glimmering flames
more than illusion
splash nothing but cold light
flickering  against this wet veneer
beckoning evening

her light lay puddled
in momentary reflection
reckoning this day with twilight
