Had fun alliterating my way through the alphabet, twice. Aspirations to become a writer one day, poems will suffice for the moment.

M is for Mesmerized. A-Z Challenge 2015

here is an icelandic poem by me, translated, to fit the day of the challenge.

Litadýrð á himni
lýsir upp skýin.
Lítil andlit
láta bros um kjálkann

Hugfangin standa þau
glápandi á undrið
sem fyrir þeim
hefur myndast.

Tilbúin fyrir kraftaverk.

Colourful splendors in the sky
lights up the clouds.
Little faces
let a smile glow
brightly around their jaws.

Mesmerized they stand
staring at the wonder
that has appeared before them.

Ready for a miracle.

-Miss Bates.


  1. The aurora borealis is certainly a miracle - lightening is another spectacular sight. Like your poem. The translation that is. I haven't a clue how to read the Icelandic version.

  2. Beautiful! I'm impressed. Love that image, by the way, and glad to have found you on the A to Z blog challenge. On that note, it looks like I'm number 1263 on the A to Z blog list today. People seem to be falling off rapidly. Sad to see. Best wishes!


Feel inclined to indulge in words that intrigue.
