Alaskan Cruise, Tracy Arm

Our cruise took us into Tracy Arm to see the beautiful mountains,




and poem-inspiring wildlife. Okay, you can't see the wild life, but our naturalist told us all about the seals that gave birth on an iceberg. The icebery was saturating in blood and afterbirth. An eagle swooped down and "devoured the afterbirth. Nothing is wasted in nature." The wonderful timing of this story (breakfast) inspired this haiku that Matt entered (not really) in the haiku contest later that day.

Ravenous eagle
Devours blood red afterbirth
You want my sausage?

His talent is aweinspiring.
