I Know A Place

Between frosty cobalt-cliffs, cruise-ship hesitates to pause,
Amidst ice sculptures echoing cheers of spirited applause,
Mesmerizing enthralled sights evincing awe-struck trance,
Lauding vast gelid expanse, hypnotizing eyes of romance.

Buoying on inlets, flaunting aesthetics of sculpted designs,
Dark blue glaciers rise for miles, as our ship gently aligns,
Watching seals resting lazily, ruminating on blocks of ice,
Empathetic of frightened sparrow decrying the crowd-size.

Gracefully ship circles around, as if staging a festive dance,
When in enamored glance, caressing hints of romance,
We praise motifs on water~ floating white cotton balls,
Where shards chromatic fall from frozen-tall bluish walls.

Miles of crystals adorning yonder, glinting cerulean blue,
Stack mounds of white contrast on distant emerald hue,
As Glacier Bay begins to fade retreating in rearward view,
When ship's whistle blows aloud, bidding a fond adieu.

A journey we treasure now in albums of cherished past,
Where moments unsurpassed, coveting-forever last,
Embracing precious memories evoking paradise on earth,
Glamorizing place-idyllic, luxuriating in cadence of mirth.

Sounds like you enjoyed the cruise. The north is truly nature's wonder. Have a great day.

Takes time to sit and think of words that fit. But I have discovered it's a gift or a spirit helping guide the words in place. Good work.

"Miles of crystals adorning yonder, glinting cerulean blue, Stack mounds of white contrast on distant emerald hue" What a beautiful imagery and just loved the contrast colors you mentioned!!!! How beautiful it would be to discern this!!! I could of course see those through your descriptive words... This is an absolutely beautiful poetry and it deserves the win!!!

What a beautiful description, Vijay, glad to see this lovely place through your poem:)

Brilliant writing Vijay that I can identity with as I've just returned from a cruise to Norway, We sailed up the fjords to a place called Olden and the scenery will stay with me forever. One of my highlights was meeting Anne-Lise in Haugesund, home of the vikings. Hope you're well. Tom

beautiful imagery here. So nice, Vijay.

Well-described, Vijay! I have been there! Notable and the wait-for-excitement is the sound of thunder, the calving of a glacier!

A poetic composition with beautiful imagery. Loved Watching seals resting lazily, ruminating on blocks of ice. I searched for the place and found it delightful. Best for a win.

Dear Vijay, after reading your words, I decided to check this place out, using the internet; of course. Its beauty leaves me in complete awe. The images you paint are simply breathtaking, my dear friend. Thank you for taking me there, even if through your words. My best to you. :) Brandy

Glacier Bay is one of the most beautiful areas on Earth. I've played the cd of whales calling to each other for years... wishing I understood their language. Quite sad it makes me feel that so much glacial ice is melting. Well written, Vijay.

Vijay, the place you visited is truly remarkable. Your depiction of the scenery from the cruise ship shows great thoughtfulness. Your artistic expression conveys a profound sense of introspection and reminiscence, evoking emotions of enchantment, reverie, and sentimentality. Best wishes with the contest.

I am sure you must have visited this exotic land ! The description of the voyage and the sights seen are so realistic that I can picture this place in my imagination. How the topography of each place is different! Nature never fails to amaze us. Simply beautiful.... ! All the Best Vijay.
