Iceberg Identities

 

Iceberg beach

in southern seas –

sunning seals dream warm;

 

Iceberg platform –

penguins dive

in super-swimmer-suits;

 

Iceberg lid

on ocean pots

of squid and krill in brine;

 

Submerged iceberg –

picturing

unknown thoughts that hide;

 

An iceberg hit,

sunk a ship –

a shattered hull moans;

 

Sunlit castle

midnight-pink –

silent melting

throne.
