dVerse Quadrille #94


That Small and Darkest There

what angers streams
to overflow and
flood to mud
like clouds that drown the sky.

and what causes a small lake
to rage
and fume inky volcanic ash.
this roar from darkest age.

and there we stood, mud
stuck to our shoes.
there. standing.



for dVerse Quadrille #94 “Roar” [note: 44 words, including roar, excluding the title] ©️ Misky 2019. Inspired by the erupting volcano inside Lake Taal.
