SERMERSSUAQ – An Earth Day Homage

She weeps. She wails.
She sighs,
hopeful
that one day her children will learn to use their knowledge wisely.

The Big Ice.

Sermerssuaq

Caribbean-blue melt-water pools
the size of small countries
spread upon Mother Earth’s once pristine pate.

Creaking, cracking
she moans,
under their weight…

Her troubles
carried on the four winds,
dust her once pristine complexion…

Sermerssuaq5
wreaking havoc upon not only her beauty,
but the very existence
of her children.

One can hear the inland ice calve
then crash
in a thundering clap…

Sermerssuaq,
a shining example of change

    Great shots! Concerned about the melting too. My shots are not as pretty as yours, but my post on Glaciers in Retreat might be of interest.
