Rage expressed

The icy fire deep below
Just waiting
For the moment
He will be released

I try as I might
To hold him down
Stuffing each ember
Carefully away

The tighter I pack
The more I stuff
The harder I try
The closer he comes

Till one day
There is no more room
Not even for one
Last ember

An explosion ensues
Every ember
Flies out of control
No where to hide

Like a volcano

As quickly
All stops
The larva hardens
And everyone awaits
Until the next time

You have captured the volcano in its entireity.......M
Reviewed by Kalikiano Kalei 4/11/2008
Nice! Tight, cogent, succinct, and flowing to the final explosive expulsion of aphoristic magma with an undeniable forcefulness not dissimilar to that of Pele's Kiluea! Since I am also of the 'pagan' persuasion, it's quite refreshing to see some skillful non-Christian literary polemics appearing here amidst all the Jesus-inspired effluent. I'll be back for more in future.
Malama pono no ka aloha nui loa, Kalikiano
