The Matriarch of the West

The Matriarch of the West

The Matriarch of the West

Iconic.
Inspirational.
Spiritual.

Her hidden power slumbers,
Eons of ice quell the fire within.
Her peaks rise through the mist,
The silhouette of an icon,
known by all.

Her grace and majesty –
guides the hands of the artist,
fires the mind of the writer,
gives the words to the poet.
Ignites the spark to create.

Noble and proud,
she is the guardian of the West.
Her invisible energy fuels the spirit,
strengthens the faith,
calms both heart and eye,
renews the soul.

she is: Snæfellsjökull.
