Cape Cod, United States
__I see with young eyes, an old mirror. Here, I hope to offer... as I see.

__This brook flows into Cape Cod Bay. At high tide its "slow-flow pools" will ice over, and standing above that thin ice, the heads of this brook pool's stones can be seen.
__When the Bay's tide lowers the pool's water level follows; as the thin ice breaks away, around each stone remains a halo of ice... glimmering in the morning sun.
__The cycle will renew.

ice halos this naked stone
the tide rises

There's such comfort in the ebb and flow and inevitability of tides...

Your haiku is beautiful.

I love the scene: it opens a great picture in my mind.

(But may I say - just very, very soft spoken - that the last line interrupted this brilliant picture?)

Best wishes
Ralf
