Two poems by Gary Pacernick

inspired by a Norwegian Coast cruise to above the Arctic Circle


       We went all the way

       to Norway

       How else could I know

       that we would see August snow.

       It was like a miracle

       to be north of the Arctic Circle.



The sea is a multi-faceted diamond?

The sea is kaleidoscope.

The sea is a savior.

The sea is a murderer

The sea has many faces and many voices.

The sea has no conscience.

The sea is a messenger of fate.

The sea accompanies the sky.

The sea is filled with emptiness.

The sea means nothing.

The sea means everything.

The sea is a trapeze and a trampoline.

The sea is many symphonies.

The sea swallows the land.

The sea is everywhere and nowhere.
