Deep in the Water

A mist forms over a liquid diamond pool
Dancing with little feet and smoky laughter
Twisting and swirling over the lake in enmity
A fog bellows through the surrounding trees
Silently rolling over the cracked, decaying leaves on the ground
It rages in susurration
Spinning silently to the edge of the silvered, frosted water
It dips a single toe into the icy mirror
Slipping gracefully and silently into the blackness
Cold like liquid nitrogen, it freezes
A mist is mummified under the surface
Like a ribbon, hiatus in the water like fragments and frays
Preserved and impalpable
Deep in the water
Breathed upon by the moon
