Fire and Ice

Take me to the land of fire and ice,

Where natural wonders enthral and entice,

Dramatic scenery from fantastical lands,

Crashing waterfalls, icebergs, black sands,

Menacing volcanoes and glaciers melting,

Bright snow-capped houses and geysers belching,

Pert puffins perched atop cliff-faces sheer,

Mysterious oceans where great whales appear,

Hot lagoon waters incredibly blue

Revitalise, relax, refresh and renew,

The shimmering marvel of the Northern Lights,

A spectacular show for those crisp winter nights,

Green, red, and purple shades flicker and dance,

Ebbing and surging the colours entrance,

Starlit skies glitter with galaxies distant,

In every direction a beauty persistent,

O, take me to the land of fire and ice,

A true awe-inspiring earthly paradise.

Just over a year ago, I had the pleasure of holidaying in the amazing country of Iceland – all photos you see are mine – and I would highly recommend it to any keen traveller, or anyone who wants a trip that’s a bit ‘different’. It’s simply uniquely and unbelievably beautiful, with so many once-in-a-lifetime opportunities! And yes, I was lucky enough to see the Northern Lights, but unfortunately my camera skills were not sufficient to capture their glory…

This is my second poem upon the theme of travel – read my first poem about the gorgeous Spanish city of Sevilla here.
