​Bright sun glistened ice
we watched the human wave rise
and practiced our craft
they broke against our shoreline
but like the sea were ceaseless

In memoriam of the battle for the Chosin Reservoir in the war that was not a war, and was never ended, the Korean conflict. Where like all wars, there were no winners, and non-combatants paid the price for the failure of their governments to find peaceful ways to address their differences.
