A ruthless wind

A ruthless wind stirred the frigid seas 
a’ rumble amid the turbulent deep 

It caused them to race for the deserted beach 
where a ripple of waves washed the sands 
Ice cold and diamond hard now 
in the raw cold of early morn 

As the troubled waters a froth of turmoil 
Scoured in vain the heartless shore 
for succour and solace 

Pounding the length of the coastline 
in search of refuge from the brooding darkness 
Abounding in the skies at the edge of the scape 

Where the horizon etched a line black as ink
beneath an uproar of skies in granite grey 
Compounding the despond of the hour
