Destiny in Frozen Time

From Inspire Nordic source


Timbers and time
With ice
Do not long survive.

Unmoving sea and salt
Chew away
At ships destined by fate.

Lines against sky
Drawn across ice peaks
Silhouettes of past ventures
Frozen by ambition.

Echoes of voices
Silenced in frigid air
Echoes of despair
Hidden by relentless white.

Please check out the blog site: Inspire Nordic !  She has amazing photos and thoughts.
