Icy Blanket

As I rounded the big lake on my late afternoon walk
 I could feel the temperature dropping 
as the wind blew across the water.
Part of the lake has a thin sheet of ice forming on it.  

As winter bears down the icy form 
will creep across the waters surface 
creating a beautiful, crackly sheet  
that will cover the lake
for its winter rest. 

Day 168
