Nature the Destroyer

hot liquid
bubbling cauldron...
witches brew


sulphuric acid
nostrils flare...
matches ignite


lava overflows
on mountain crevice...
blister patch

    Very good work..Reads like a winner to me..Not sure if you are speaking of an actual volcano or if you are refering to a pot of grits in the kitchen..I feel like it is an erupting volcano when my grits blow over the top..Ha!..Thanks for the honor of being placed in your favorites..Sara
