To the FIRES of death: A POEM

To the fires of death: A POEM

I saw the climbing fish
Among the wet giver of life
Burn in the plate of fire
At the point where two opposites meet...
And the fire and water
Gush and battle
Like the splash of a million gallons
Each spitting and cursing
As the sea monster erupted
Brilliant red balls of red furnace
Stream to jam into the ocean
Blinded in the cold waters
Fuming with smokes
The water boils
Steamy hot
Hot meets cold
Lava meet water
To unleash the fires of death
At the shore along the sea floors
The lava unbuttons her power
Mountain of waves explode
With JAWS to choke thy surfers
The wall of waters, immense
Giant waves, ferocious volcano

Source

Hawaii, the island of the monsters
Beauty is in your eyes
The mountains dance to our seduction
The elegant hawk parade ostensibly
A mammoth of sea life bask
Nature in you, we find respite!

      Alexander, reading the poem made me feel the powerful emotion expressed in this very beautiful poem. A great meeting of overflowing mighty lava with the serene cold water of sea evokes such an uncanny feeling in our mind ! Great poem ! Voted up.
