Winter's Entry in a Marooned Ship's Log

There is no mercy.
God loves only the waters of the seas.

Wind lashes against all that stands
above earth, quivering then falling, snapped
to lay tracks for those lost in snow,

moon chill as fear against the poles
quivering then freezing like ghost prints
the blessed follow to their final home.

1-2 July 2013.
