Ice Floe


Ice Floe
By: Noel N. Villarosa


The glacial epoch is now part of history
The spectacle of glacier widely seen in the Arctic
A habitat for Arctic mammals and where the trees end
This is the land of the midnight sun

A huge mass of glacier is shrinking
Detached to become an iceberg
And now melting into chunks of ice floe
Resembling a broken and frozen waterfall

Steller’s Sea-eagle flying over sea
Do watch the Inuit hunter stranded on high cliff
The orcas graceful dive into the deep
And the flickering of an iceblink

Extremely cold slowly subsiding by this global warming
Shrinking Arctic ice and rising the sea levels
Can there be another aurora borealis to glow in many colors
While the last polar bear clinging to the top of the last piece of ice floe
