The Crust

The Crust

A Poem by LouBelle

He ran my fresh rivers to coal 

pockets of tempestuous heat 

forced the waters to boil 

wild salmon abandoned their homes 

and the empty riverbanks dried.


Pre-historic rocks left 

sleeping below the ground

were woken by the nudging light 

winking at them from the riverbeds. 


Disturbed by impending stillness 

they dragged themselves up to see

smoked air burning to a crust 

boiling rivers hurtling down

to the edges of the earth

and over with them I went.

Powerful use of words shared dear poet. The words allowed the reader to fall into your thoughts. I wanted to view what you saw. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Wow the world is definitely flat when man's passion burns like this...
Love the references here to the waking up, the fire, almost like some Godzilla of romantic longing being woken up by some explosion of touch.
