more haiku from my trip to Alaska

Misty Fjords

by Joan E.

Point Alava fronts
deep channel sacked by waves
salmon surge with tide

eroded limestone
of Rudyerd Island intrigues
tidal lines tell tales

New Eddystone Rock
resembles a ship under sail
volcanic spires

rivulets cascade
down rocky mountain slopes
waterfall wonderland

Beales' Falls thunder
and roar past spruce-covered cliffs
Bay swallows surge

sun petroglyph shines
from golden rock face at shore
Natives' mauve emblem



Southeast Alaska's Inside Passage is a maze of channels, straits, sounds and bays. This area is home to Misty Fjords National Monument Wilderness.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
