Pompeii

Pompeii short poem

Photo by Andy Montgomery

Amid ashes pumice lay
Life in cinders Pompeii in disarray
Vesuvius plumed angry swell
Archeologists unearth deathly knell

Volcanic vomit ample spume
from sunlight golden to darkened gloom
Roman bathing in waters pure
Nimbus of fires blazing coiffure

In 79 AD it’s eruption did occur
No time to flee , No time for prayer
For sure a wrong analogy of mine
but this ‘Furnace’ it froze in time
