Here they are before me, surreal in the dazzling morning sun. Against clear skies of blue, and peaked snow-capped mountains- these tall glaciers of Alaskan ice, stand heavenly before my eyes. Their marbled, glistening whites, with multi shades of blue, arcane crevices and jagged peaks- stir visions of cold, ghost-like forms that glare at me in this mysterious Bay of murmurous creaks and moans. More than the eye can see, these lustrous glaciers speak, like eerie, moving forms, in corridors that shift and moan- and with their loud sonorous wails, give birth- calving chunks that fall. With an abrupt, roaring explosion, all at once it starts- the large, calved segment plummets to the sea. Waves and splashes follow every birth. These exotic glaciers live and speak- more than the eye can see. Sandra M.
