Volcano Poem by Valerie Dohren

Volcano

Rating: 4.2


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

Waterfall and Volcano two straight to the point poems. I like the way you write.

Your way of morphing natural occurences into human emotions is excellent. Stunning even.
