Maline Lindsey (2013 Poem In Your Pocket)

An Exercise in Haiku

by Maline Lindsey

The goddess Pele
Wrote the islands with her fire
Stories that still flame.

Ancient oral tales
Erupting her sulfur prose
…Ignite creation!

Her rock voice echoes
Licks me with sharp, molten, tongue
And I must write too.
