After Eruptions

After Eruptions

A Poem by Jason Baptiste


The ground shaken by a rumbled sound 
Spewing ashes miles into the sky
Orders of evacuation to habitats around 
Choosing to live or die

Exploding like bombs and violently shouts
Its lava climbing high 
Blocking the sun with darkened clouds 
Metallic birds not safe to fly
Rivers of fire flowed onto streets
Fragrance of cooked neighborhoods smells 
Destroying paths beneath its feet 
Turning paradise into hells

Stares of the frightened and shocked
Filled those able to see
Running to safety against the clock 
Where survivors needs to be

Returning shall not be soon
Life changes has begun 
Nights without stars or moon
After eruptions
