Crunching through the Snow and Ice

The sound of the ice crunching under foot
While I walk the dog 'round the frozen lake
Serves as a soundtrack I use as I put
My thoughts in an order I can take

With me along my journey through the day
A sequence of thoughts I can later repeat
To keep things in order along the way
Tasks to accomplish and people to meet

But it also draws me out of my head
To experience everything around
To pause in my thoughts and look out instead
See the light on the ice, hear the sound

Of the geese as they take off from snow
Gaze off at the peaks, the trees that are near
The winter landscape, the late sunrise glow
All makes me marvel that can I live here
