Glacier

Glacier

 

Lacy shards chime as they meet 

in ice berg waves

newly launched in clouds 

of blue white spray

 

all of it massive

and deep, like the crevasse 

that still buckles above 

 

in the churning, scraping

scouring 

ice

 

and somehow a part of you 

is just as relentless 

 

or flows just

enough

 

so that in seeing the glacier 

entire,

as a whole

 

you know that 

each shard and wave

belongs to this purpose

 

even the spinning depths of you

meet

in this molecular 

music

 

and share 

in its work

of shaping this world.
