St. Helens Roar


The Day Mt. St. Helens Roared

Majestic
Fire
Beauty
Power

Rumble, rumble.

Roar of warning
Danger
Kaboom!!!!!

Destruction
Miles of gray filled skies
Dust souviners everywhere

Calm
Wonder
Hope for future?

God will provide.

We went to St Helens a couple of yrs ago and i have always wanted to go back in the summer time to see it in full bloom it truly is a beautiful place.

I remember well Mount St Helene.What a tragic day .Your photo is very impressive.And your poem sounds a little like a japanese haiku..
I tried to comment your former post with the beautyful picture of snow , but it did not work. I hope this comment will work.
I like poetry, so go on in this way, I'm sure you will do beautyful things.

That ragged stump makes me think of a ravaged hillside. The bright light makes me think of hope. I enjoyed your poem. It reminded me of the raw strength of nature.

A moment I thought that the picture was of a volcano - so much did the stump look like one.

I'm glad we don't have one.

I wondered if you had any snow yet. I know you are anxiously awaiting it. We have had very cold night time temperatures the last few days and the wind chill has been so sharp and cold.
Keep well, my friend!

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
