Volcano - Poem by Valerie Dohren

Seething cauldron, an inferno
belching noxious vapours
spewing red hot molten lava
spilling down mountainside
to drown the land in sulphurated destruction

Rocks hurtling through the air,
falling everywhere -

- turning into words pouring from lips
burning - destroying

    Your way of morphing natural occurences into human emotions is excellent. Stunning even. (Report) Reply

    True, words can be powerfully destructive. Great analogy. (Report) Reply
