Travel Haiku - Iceland Wonders - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

iceland
your warmth
the only companion

Iceland volcanic eruption
my dream to travel Europe
turns into ashes

Iceland freezes
global travel
with volcanic ashes

colonising European skies
for weeks
Iceland ashes

now ashes, ashes not ice
people would remember
Iceland by

Iceland...our hearts heat up
with excitements
to see its wonders

Iceland little by little
the ice melts for us to
discover the land

Iceland...the seasons
the sea, the mountains and the sky
waves of excitements

Shaping daily into a different landmass, the volcanic island of Iceland is constantly spewing lava, bubbling hot springs, and floating masses of glacial ice—evidenced by the recent eruption of the volcano under Eyjafjallajokull glacier. Yet vibrant villages dot the lusciously green landscape framed in therapeutically blue waters, where some of the most spectacular whale-watching is yours to be had. When visiting this least populated country in Europe, you will rarely fight crowds or trudge along the typical tourist trail. All seasons are worthy of a visit, with long summer days bordered by magnificent displays of wildflowers, and the breathtaking beauty of a prismatic winter sky when atmospheric phenomena infiltrate the wide-open Icelandic heavens.
