Sleeping in Ice

The Song of life

Once lush and vibrant
Tears flowed from leaden skies
Lines etched deep with time
Shaping ghostly forms
Now barren and dry

Mars
Alone in the sea of space
A world of desolation
Silent and forgotten
Sleeping in ice

Winds whisper silently
Singing the song of life
A tune forged in death
Mournful with remembrance
“Water”
“Water”
