Climate Change Questions

Climate Change Questions.

Did this retreating glacier squandered all its beauty

mimicking

an aquamarine serpent

frozen between the Mendenhall Towers

as a child’s skates sliced up

lake ice reflections

of snow and rock?

 

Has it calved too many icebergs,

sloughing them into the lake

to melt in surprising warmth?

 

On these too common days of winter rain

and autumn storms

can the glacier and its consorts

be more than

a metaphor for loss?
