Blind Panic

Blind panic There was a warning came one day It said disaster’s on its way An old volcano in the distance It could erupt in any instance The molten ash came pouring out As neighbouring village was in doubt Folk were running to and fro It seems they had nowhere to go. Buildings were cracking one by one Blocking out the golden sun This thing did turn our day to night As everyone was filled with fright As the Earth did turn to lava Many prayed to the holy father. Vera Duggan 16 August 2014.

This is a very well written poem about disasters. I always say that when they happen somewhere else, we think we are safe, but when they happen close to home we don't know where to run. Thanks for sharing... Lucilla

Vera, I can't imagine anything more frightening than this. I remember seeing artist depictions of old Pompei and pictures of bodies forever cast in stone. You have done an excellent job of re-creating the vision!

Thank you so much for the comment Jim, yes I have been to Italy and seen Pompei and that gigantic Volcano, it would have been terrible for those people, when you look at the volcano all sorts of things go through your mind and imagination is a funny thing, take care my friend.............Vera............

Thank you so much Robert, yes I have heard about Yellowstone, lets hope it doesn't happen, they do say that it is like a keg of dynamite ready to explode, but it is no good worrying about it, by the way I googled your house the other day, how far are you from Woolmart, looks like walking distance, see if you can google ours, take care my dear friend love to all...........Vera...........
