ALASKA GLACIER CLIMB

ALASKA GLACIER CLIMB

We climbed up a crumbling mountain path
to stand by a glacier today.
The blue ice had the colors of
A Hawaiian sea and the rushing
melt-off sounded like the ocean.
Although the Artic cold pinched my cheeks red,
And the rock shards cut at my new boots,
I stood in the bigger silence and
felt the familiar foreverness that instantly heals me whole.
