Clouds of Ash

Ash is displayed in massive cloudy form Looking like what’s coming is a large storm Black clouds of ash bursts upwards to the sky Clouds all shine from the sun, casting red dye Crash, the volcano erupts to begin Sending ash into the heavens again Cloudiness form with black on the bottom Red exploding on the top of the gloom Swirling around, the thick clouds move downwind It’s blocking sight, not knowing what it sends Coming along explosions erupting Destroying the sky and what’s enchanting One moment to the next, fear is sky high As ash billows expulsing a grand sigh

    Reads like winning material to me..Being in an area where a volcano erupted would be a very eerie experience..Thanks for the visits to my work..The Chihuahua seems to love the cat and likes to give her ears a bath..The cat seems to know she is harmless and enjoys her company..The cat misses her mother who was killed by our son's Patterdale..The mother was trying to protect her baby..Sara
