    Love 'ice-locked lake' and very Scand Noir too!

    I've never written about lakes despite writing several haiku about the Lake District (home of the Romantic Poets).

    So if ice-locked then…

    snowmelt
    a river begins giving
    back its sky

    All those countless footprints, I wonder if the lake is permanently frozen how far back and how many in time?

    "to nowhere"

    as trails course from shore to shore
    ice sets its sails to the warm

    To me, very Thoreau, mysterious and on one's journey. And something Zen for me too! Wonderful haiku!
