Volcanic Love - Poem by Mihaela Pirjol

The concealed effervescence
Of snowy mountain's magma:
The fire beneath the ice;
The red beneath the white;
The love beneath indifference: —
Once ignited,
It cannot be extinguished!
For it is quietly smouldering
Beneath the surface—
Ready for eruption.

Time, can only intensify it.
And the waiting,
Is the taciturn preparation
For eruption:
Thus the earthly elements
Conspire to love:
By a firm endurance
Which transcends
The boundaries of time.

    For eruption:
    Thus the earthly elements

    Which transcends
    The boundaries of time.... stunning expression with nice theme. Beautiful poem shared amazingly.10.
