Iceberg

#Writeclub #Iceberg

Iceberg

In the watery depths – it waits
Cold hearted assassin
Engaging its prey
Boats don’t stand a chance…
Even when clad with mighty armour – They’re
Rounded up as they try to escape – and attacked,
Grounded – or Sunk

If wide eyed

Captains don’t open their

Eyes – the crew they work with will get a surprise

Being jostled by the giant of frozen ice

Engaging a giant ? the boat pays a price

Rocking the boat or bashing its hull

Gushing in seawater till the hull , it is full

Old House

#promptuarium #House

Old man sits

in his burgundy robe

looking around his ill gotten gains

 

Behind him – the picture of some

Ancestor from long ago – who’s

Real estate has served the family well, both at home and

Overseas….he’ll live

Nicely on the proceeds of the stuff brought from underground
