Eruption! Volcano fiery fanged explosion

wind fire, sharpened light.

Centrifugal burning core of your retina

synathesia of senses,

abrasive clash clash of elements

volcanic transformation spews forth fire

O dangerous beauty

captured juxtaposition of art and nature

cleansed and transmuted radiance

molten stalagmite spikes of life and death
