                               THE ERUPTING VOLCANO

                                    blood joy-boiled
                                gushed between rocky loins
                                         proclaim birth 
 
                                          red hot tears
                                       erupt magnificence
                                          vanquish black

                                          lava pain cool
                                   eruptions promise spring
                                            brief respite

                                          spring dazzles
                                     birdsong forgets fire
                                           mount dozes

                                            sky drizzles
                                       eruption of rebirth
                                           rumbles sweet

                                              terror hides
                                  mountain deep womb veils
                                               future fire
