This southerly view shows Somes Sound as seen from the north end in Somesville, Maine on Mount Desert Island. Bar Harbor is to the north and northeast of this point.

My response to the prompt:


on near by shore
glacier  formations  reminder
snow ~ ice formed Somes Sound 
My response to yesterdays prompt Carpe Diem #624, Snow
due to not being able to connect to the internet
evening snow fall 
in church steeples light  
worshiper’s foot prints 
I live next to a church and can see the front door and steeple 
from my house… the sight of the snow in the light on the steeple
fascinates me and lets me know how much snow is falling.
Moments in time, each special and memorable.
From the prompt Glacier:
A glacier (US /ˈɡleɪʃər/ or UK /ˈɡlæsiə/) is a persistent body of dense ice that is constantly moving under its own weight; it forms where the accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation (melting and sublimation) over many years, often centuries.
Glaciers slowly deform and flow due to stresses induced by their weight, creating crevasses, seracs, and other distinguishing features.
They also abrade rock and debris from their substrate to create landforms such as cirques and moraines. Glaciers form only on land and are distinct from the much thinner sea ice and lake ice that form on the surface of bodies of water.

This glacier looks fantastic … let me look at the haiku which Jane uses for example for this modern kigo for winter according to her “A Dictionary of Haiku”:

under low clouds
evening sky glacier
cools the wind

a journey ends
where the glacier melted
a field of stones

Two extraordinary beautiful haiku I think ….

blueish, greyish and whiteish snow
