Earth & Water

this first day of spring
water drips from frozen eaves –
tulips poke from earth

birds singing by window
like me, they’re ready for spring

Cathedral of Ice

I was watching a documentary on an under sea expedition in antartica. They were investigating what was causing the demise of the krill, favorite food of whales and other sea life. Divers went under the ice with cameras. The result..a bonus. Described by one immersed in the experience as “under sea cathedrals…”, very appropriately so…
The colors cast onto the ice by daylight was an amazing sight. It looked like the northern lights viewed from under water and ice.
