Old Lava

cold to touch now,
   lava was so hot
so many years ago.

      it flowed
   like water
into the sea.

old lava now
   and rich in
rust (old iron)

and the waves
   break on it
(erosion wins).

      that boulder
   squats quietly
as we sail past.

  1. Monumental
    Sad and very sad
    But the burst of honesty
    Strangely
    delightful.
    Truth devours
    And it clears
    the path
    Sometimes it rages
    Like turbulent
    waves of fire
    Sometimes it is
    Gentle and fresh
    Like a new bud seen
    Only in Spring.
