iceberg

07/06/2009

centuries old glacier
testament of bygone eras
growing in strength and size
capturing pieces of the past
time capsule of memories
melting and growing, drifting
claiming lives from affronting vessels
stalwart of power as frozen rock
deep and beautiful
mysterious natural wonder
a gift from the Master artist
withstanding salty death
unblinking in stormy seas
glinting in peaceful sun
then, time holds still, a crash
avalanche of action
the temple brought down
untouched but broken
whole to pieces in seconds
self destructed floating apart
to begin anew
