Haiku on a glacier at dawn: winter dreaming

Written by: Michael Dom

Glacial blue dawn;
Slender pink whiskers of warmth
touch frozen ruins

Icebergs sailing by
scatter rubble in their wake;
Sharp winds cleave hard rock

Jagged shards melting
slowly in shallow sunbeams;
Chill pebble strewn pools

Icy continents; 
Light glancing on still waters
mirrors frosted skies

Long days and short nights; 
Winter rules this citadel
in crisp white mantle
