birthing moment

locked in dark blackness
not even waiting
just motionless
gradually tiny pin holes mated
causing an occasional gulp
a burp
absolutely silently
what had been locked
was freed
the frozen casing quietly gone
no crashing
no yelping
no great drama
the happy dance began
fingers stretching
diamonds flashing
the whole lake smiled
as it welcomed the geese
the ducks
the loons
that suddenly appeared from nowhere
a new season birthed
right before my eyes
