Insomnia on Ice and Coldplay’s Ghost Stories

a Poem, a Photo & some Music...


Insomnia on Ice

Eyelashes turn to icicles
to slash the milky sea
where twin black galleons
rock in iris storms.
The evening star flickers
as snow binds the lids to sleep.

The Royal Collection: Grotto in an iceberg.
Insomnia on Ice is partly inspired by a photo taken over a 100 years ago.
I saw it slightly more recently at The Photographer's Gallery London.
Coldplay's Midnight
A suggested track, from their new album Ghost Stories, out today.
Thanks for leaving the light on Coldplay!
