Poet Liliana E. Guzmán paints the scenery of Iceland.

A doubled cut sky interrupted by mountains
the layer of early hues then blended by cotton

Shadows that meet under the ocean overlap
as ocean nudges forward then back against itself

Like wind that stays all nervously howling
with strong breezy hoots that make it a good day

Stacked rubble creating shelves for themselves
with a cold sweat glittering over the sickly stone bush

Still sand that’s been sitting through miles of time
is hit will fallen light that comes from the popped sun

Lifted moisture softens my chapped skin
—this is the new way for sealife to live

As peripheral vision cuts the landscape short,
the blinds of a blink compact what it could be
