Disaster

The islanders were not aware

the fates would turn their watchful glare

on them

The beast below was fast asleep

till something made it jump and leap

near them

And from the ground – and covering rock

the lava rained – giving people shock

round them

and rescuers gathered around

with every naval ship abound

to them

Fissure

#Fowc #Fissure

They drilled

a small hole

to get to the treasures

hidden below

The hole let in water

and lava from below

and the small hole it moved

and began to grow

and as lava met water

it created steam

creating a water funnel

in the extreme

and the lava it cooled

filling the hole

but the lives it affected

took its own toll

What’s the world made of ?

#writeclub #Material #Question #Ground

Mountains made of metals

that need mining to be used

Minerals around the Metals

May also be fused

to make shiny new things for this and for that

and shirts ties and jumpers and coats and hats

occasionally the metals come up in liquid form

breaking through the crust – molten and warm

and the humans decided what costs them most

as some metals appear more common as toast

and as some make tractors so the farmers don’t toil

the chemists are putting stuff into the soil

the metals that feed the plants roots in the ground

made from the rocks from the Mountainous mound

and veggies and fruit are picked from the tree

so something tasty can be eaten for tea
