LOST IN LAVA SWIRLS

by John Yeo

Snow builds in mountainous waves

Lockdown travel, harsh restrictions

Meandering, drifting thought-waves 

During dreary snow-encrusted days,

Lost in deep imagination’s sunshine 

Miles away across the ocean.

~

Thoughts of Mount Etna’s last eruption

Sunshine with swirls of ash descending

Colourful, dramatic, awe-inspiring,

Lava; scorching everything in its path,

Thickening ash darkens the Italian sky

My mind meandering lost in the lava swirls.

Mount Etna erupted on 17th February 2021 with no injuries or damage caused.

The Italian volcano Mount Etna has erupted for the first time this year 2021.

The volcano which is located on the island of Sicily, erupted on Tuesday, sending jets of lava into the sky.

Pictures shared on social media showed a plume of smoke rising from the mountain and ash raining down on buildings.

A nearby airport in Catania, was forced to close temporarily due to ash in the air making it unsafe to fly but there have been no reports of injuries or damage from the eruption.
