The Roads are Paved

Clouds braid and interlace,
intricate veils, diffusing blue.

Beneath them the glacier mirrors
identical patterns in snow and ice
as it mouths its slow song seaward.

The sun has paved a road of gold
across the polished ocean.

mmm, the last lines were what I started with.

I was watching a travel programme or something and thinking how the ocean looked polished.
