Quick words after hiking in Volcanoes

Hiking Kileau Iki crater

The clouds covered the sun,

Rain sprinkled, cooling waters,

In need of rain, invite the blessings,

Seeing steam last time I hiked it,

Surprising to note it was a lake of lava,

Just in 1959… Ranger said it was safe,

How does he know? There is steam rising

From the cinder cone in the back,

On far side of crater, an incredible

Forest of Qi, drinking it in, slurping

Gulping it down, too bad the trail

Was tightly walled off by the steep slopes,

Huge ferns, ohia trees, and lava rock,

I would like to sit and bask in the clear light

Clean air, moist organic rhythms,

Madame Pele is nearby, smoke rises from

Hale’ma’uma’u as she does her dance

Nice people on the hike, many people

Asking questions, directions,

Five mile hike at 4,000 ft, a good trek
