Three Icelandic Poems

Geyser at Strokkur (Poem)


At Strokkur I stand and stare

at a giant blue bubble that

rises suddenly to burst in the

sky with a surprising force

that blocks out the sun for a

moment or two with a plume of

dense white steam gently falling

down to wet and gray ground.


Langjokull Glacier(Poem)


At the edge of a great

rift in southern Iceland,

where two tectonic plates

steadily split apart.......

I stare out at a distant

Langjokull glacier which

sits calmy atop a very high,

gray mountain with clutching

jagged white fingers of ice.


Gullfoss Falls (Poem)



Who would ever guess that

a broad river flowing down from

distant pure white glaciers

could drop so suddenly over a

black lava rim only to turn sharply

at a right angle and do the same

all over again doubling the

intensity of its roar in torrents

as white as distant glaciers.



Iceland!
