... Another "researched" write (!!), so if any of you who have "real" knowledge of these things spot any howling errors, PLEASE do me the huge favour or letting me know!! My college tutors expect accuracy! TY Kate xx :))


Iceberg - "Iluliaq":
"The Spirit of Ice",
so the Inuits say.

Iluliaq - Frozen time:
Pre-existing all peoples,
it was before all cultures -
sealing all knowledge
within its sixteen million years.

The Inuit people are never alone.
All things, animate and inanimate,
speak to them their souls
and share with them
their wisdom.

Iluliaq - "Iceberg":
Born to dissolve
its Spirit of the Ages
into waters that evaporate
and drop again as rain:

Understanding falling
on a thirsting generation.

What a fascinating poem this is. I learnt something new and once again marvelled at your delivery. Kate you are far too humble. I know I sound like I am gushing but you really are one of the best poets on the den. Fantastic work!

Yes you do well and now you must be true first to yourself. In that what your tutors should expect is your artistic freedom to be you.

Again another superb write, having experienced them (icebergs) up close and personnel I still see the beauty of them in my minds eye thirty years after sailing throughout them and breaking through the pack ice of the North. Their intensity is overwhelming.

Bless you, Karla! Thank you so much - should I therefore change my references from Inuit to Inuk or Inupiat, d'ya think?! K xx

This is truly a gem that you have polished for our delightful reading.

You move up to the head of the class with this outstanding write! The word, "Iluliaq," is actually West Greenlandic Inupiat. (Not that I speak it, mind you, I've just done a lot of research on the Inuk peoples.)

I particularly enjoyed

Born to dissolve
its Spirit of the Ages
into waters that evaporate
and drop again as rain:

Understanding falling
on a thirsting generation."

I find it fascinating how ancient peoples explained natural phenomena, things beyond their comprehension and control. :) Very well written, I give you an A ++++! :)

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
