volcano love

peak ascending skyward
stable and steady like rooted oaks
hot rocks spewing
temps rise
pink lava flows
as if blood mixed with tears
staining the surface
in a streaming fluid
releasing the pent up “strength”
oozing like ketchup squeezed
from plastic packet
until spent
one with the earth


sheds cocoon -like protective covering
expands colorful wings
then south
then west
testing legs
still wobbly
trusts an inner knowing

I can FLY
High as the volcano
beyond the rainbow
