Iceland Magic: Geysers

In the land of cold and ice, water vapors betray its hidden seething innards

Hot water bubbles to the surface, ready to fill a tea pot

But here, a much fiercer force is preparing to emerge. His name is Strokkur.

And then he blows

A force that cannot be contained – exuberant, reckless, wild

Spent, he curls back inside the stony caverns

For a few moments, calm returns. But everyone knows, it’s only the quiet before the next storm.

  1. Wonderful photos and words to capture the fun, mystery, and force of geysers. Your post reminds me of my trip to Yellowstone and watching Old Faithful explode at routine times to delight the crowds. Thanks Annette. May your days be full of magic.
