Icebergs drip under starlight.
Frost clouds floating by.
Shed themselves to the water.
Black sea stars burning by.
Buoyed mountains of ice
sparking with cold lights --
distant as a fire
or a warm home to die.

your gift of imagery is endless as the stars.
Beautiful vision Mike

If at first you don't succeed destroy all the evidence that you tried.

Again you show me something that your imagination can conjure, which I couldn't even think of picturing.  You're a powerful poet, Mike, and this poem is evidence of it...

I loved the blackness of the imagery here.  Especially the black sea stars, that has to be my favourite part of the poem... just incredible.  Kudos---

Faith is a fine invention
When gentlemen can see
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.
~~~Emily Dickinson
