Vog Sunrise


The scarlet sun slices

an ebony frame

dazzling the Iwa birds

circling violet water lilies

blowing orange kisses as

amber tongues poke

tall banyan trees

greening with dew.


From Wikipedia:

Vog is a form of air pollution that results when sulfur dioxide and other gases and particles emitted by an erupting volcano react with oxygen and moisture in the presence of sunlight….

The Frigate Bird is called `Iwa, in Hawaii.
