Northern Image

Scarred ravens scorch the ice
Of cumulus built upon canvassed sky

Norse fathers had told
Of a journey through winter’s long

But it’s the quiet before the gale
That distorts the easel’s stead


  1. All is quiet before the weathering storm, soo true. Or maybe we just look because it's too quiet and then we find what we are looking for because we looked, or it finds us..haha

  2. Gorgeous, stark feel to this. That first couplet is gorgeous.

  3. an intriguing pic you paint here fred..the ravens, the ice..i felt the tension of the quiet before the storm breaks loose..
