Gaian Bloodstream


Raw clefts, torn seaward

the mountain’s volcanic corpus

streams black eyed orange viscosity

Deepening year to year, over a period greater

than memory, these flows are truest blood

pulsing from the slit veins of god-entity Earth

She’s a living wound; cyclically she heals

then rips open again in self-regulating torment

  1. That’s the most poetic description of a volcano I’ve read. I’m going to show it to my mother, the Geologist. She’s into art and volcanoes.
