And the people
went on
marrying and being given in marriage
right up to the day
when the liquid fire
covered their lives
and froze them,
in a moment
of eternal stagnation.

Umm.... a documentary perhaps? Just curious how this poem came to be. Very nicely written. Missing you!

Actually, I wanted to write something with a volcano image in it, and this one just happened. Pompeii is a fascinating occurrence at any rate.
