Antarctica

30 Day Poetry Challenge Day 15
Prompt: snow deeper than thoughts


Beneath this one mile
thicket of snow
an entire life stream
of beautiful bacteria
and frozen starfish
reside.

The streams of salt
stab at every corner
until all creatures
are asleep and dead.

Beyond my understanding
dwells a plethora
of magnificence.
