Shards of ice blown by the wind
move through the water like a large wave.
Sounds of breaking glass are disconcerting
as it cuts through the wood framed houses
crushing into the living rooms.
Residents along the shore have never seen
anything like it, but with climate change
they'll become like the dinosaurs of long ago,
unable to survive the coming end.
Their bones will be found
by future generations
their frozen artifacts
clues to their habits and lifestyles.
