Frozen

At the edge of the Arctic Sea

Frozen –
bones upon the earth –
hard –
unforgiving soles breath stench
that otherwise repel
those whose love of life seems dear.

The sea stands fast –
and bleak is the horizon
that yields not to life –
for adoration and consolation dwells not
outside your heart.
