Black Ice Poem

Black Ice

In the quiet of winter's embrace,
Under the cloak of night's deep grace,
Lies a phantom, sleek and sly,
A treacherous layer called Black Ice.

It mirrors the moon in deceptive guise,
A perilous beauty, cold and wise.
Travelers, heed the silent cry,
For beneath your feet, the dangers lie.

With a whisper, it calls to those unaware,
A dance with fate, through the frosty air.
Yet, in its peril, a strange allure,
A test of mettle, pure and sure.

As I crafted “Black Ice,” I was inspired by the silent, almost ghostly presence of ice on winter roads. It’s fascinating how something so dangerous can also hold a mesmerizing beauty, reflecting the moonlight with a deceptive promise of solidity. This duality reminded me of life’s hidden challenges, those moments that seem benign until they test our strength and resolve. I envisioned a traveler, wary yet enchanted, as a metaphor for anyone who faces and overcomes the unseen trials in their journey. This poem is a reflection on the beauty of nature’s hazards and the lessons they impart, a tribute to the resilience within us all.
