.

There are fewer mountains

of ice to scale anymore. One

day, perhaps tomorrow, that

will be more true.

.

Waterfalls, like Victoria,

like Niagra may erase landscapes

slowly into wild new wonders

of icescapes.

.

The legendary heights

of Earth are lowering down

as if some great Babel

was crumbling slowly over a

few hundred decades.

.

Ice sculptors built these glacial

palaces pretending to be artists of

high places. So majestic, humans

made sacrifices to these mountains

because once it was in vogue.
