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 –


unknown thoughts that hide;


An iceberg hit,

sunk a ship –

a shattered hull moans;


Sunlit castle

midnight-pink –

silent melting
