Are We On Land Or Sea

Blue ice occurs when snow falls on a glacier, is compressed, and becomes part of a glacier that winds its way toward a body of water (river, lake, ocean, etc.). During its travels, air bubbles that are trapped in the ice are squeezed out, and the size of the ice crystals increases, making it clear.

Are We On Land Or Sea

The edge of the world
forms in the glacial ice found
in our far places
seldom seen, not
even by the whales and krill.
But that's where I find
you stand, in our cracks,
in our blue lit deep caverns.
I would say silent
but really beneath
all that silence the ice creaks
and cracks and still groans.
