April Poem-A-Day Challenge - Day 3

For Day Three of Robert Lee Brewer's April Poem-A-Day (Writer's Digest) challenge, I wrote a "tentative" poem.

Is it Safe to Jump In?

Suspicious River

She stepped barefoot to rocky
shore, pointed toe towards icy
creek, dipped down in to flowing
winter, brushed away soggy leaves
left over from his last kiss, words
gushed out from heart to hurtful
until winter came round again, hardening 
all that flowed through her, back 
to stifled, uninviting, mouth
frozen shut
