POEM - Volcano Eruption

A fun blog with a poem highlighting nature's strength even when life "shakes us" a little.

Please note this poem follows a technique called concrete or visual poetry. "Though the term ‘concrete poetry’ is modern, the idea of using letter arrangements to enhance the meaning of a poem is old. Such shaped poetry was popular in Greek Alexandria during the 3rd and 2nd centuries BCE, although only the handful which were collected together in the greek Anthology now survive." (This definition was taken from Wikipedia.)

Volcano Eruption


The rocks break in tw-o;

Thick smoke in your view.


CRACKLING,


CRACKLING,

the earth is shaking like jello.

The ground turns grey and yellow.


BOOM!


The lava is coming

out.

I hear a dreadful sound.

The small village looks like a b a t t l e g r o u n d.


The tall trees get naked;

flower petals

In the soup of death,

no one can take a breath.


But the strength of the earth forever will remain.

Brining days full of rain -

to take away nature's pain.


THE VOLCANO HAS ERUPTED.
