Microexplorers scaling an egg

The glacial slope is tall, a vast and perilous globe 
It has been a whiteout for nearly three days now
We do all we can with our equipment to maintain our footing
The surface is so uncertain, but the summit is within reach 
5 am, Thursday (?), We are awakened by an earthquake 
An intolerably loud crack, perhaps a large chunk of opaque ice falling into the sea 
Some sort of strange eclipse now, a great silver moon appears overhead 
And now---now a wall of molten yellow magma approaches us! 
I must stop writing and seek shelter, pray for us small men!

    After reading a certain comment below, if I state a piece of yours to be "interesting" or "intriguing", I usually mean this in a positive way(I do understand the possible trepidation, when someone says/types: "This is an interesting poem." Ha ha!). Hey, you have a poem about miniature men again. Wot a wonderfully quirky theme this is -- again you came up with strong imagery.
