Fire and Water

Hawaii (Big Island) trip. It is so striking meeting of ocean and lava. The tenacity of life has transformed this rock. Enjoy the poem.


Fire and Water

Fire and water
Lava and ocean
Rock in the vast Pacific.
Life comes
Grass and rustic trees
with toes curled
hanging onto the new land.
Birds find their way
on hurricane winds
and it begins.
Lush jungle
huddles on the enduring basalt.
New folds of rock
bubble up from the belly of earth
and we visit
this rock.
We call it paradise
Lava and ocean
Fire and water.
