Nature's Fireworks: Lava Show!

Happy Birthday American Dream
“Every day 
you have the opportunity 
to learn and experience
 and someone
 new. -

Seize the opportunity. 
Learn and experience 
everything you can, 
and use it 
to change the world.”

Rodney Williams

And Now, Nature's Fireworks:

“Mount Kilauea

 spilled glowing lava 

like cords of orange


 from seemingly nowhere.

 In the blackness

 that engulfed the night,

 electric heat

 lit flowing streams

 that fell into the sea,


in a cloud of stea

with a sizzling splash.”
