Fire!
Daubed in darkest night
A pulsing brush of Vermillion
Spanning earth to sky

Sired!
In molten flames of biting rock
From the earth within
A show of force unleashed on all

Serpentine…the river flows…slowly through crag and cleft
Consuming…fallen trees over the shallow ledge
Ever moving in a measured pace down argentite slopes
Adding to the sliding shale over centuries untold

Emblazed on a darker canvas, the dissolution of light
Scattered on the northern gale, swept away in a sea….a sea of black (ash)

Ash to ash, and so the path is mottled in the cooling night
The slaggy trail of scoria atop the molten core
Smoke and fumes…. issued forth…far below the cliff
Engulfing all from talus low to spire high

Entropic acceleration, a pyrogenic demise
Racing ever forward with granite seas aflame…burning high…burning into night

Gone!
And where were those that lie in wait?

Based aside base in tribute to colossus
Where dwelled the foolish few…
Supplicant life spent in the pulsing shadow
Of (an) enthralling force to abyssal to pursue

As in turn it now pursues…

A cleansing conflagration for all who may descry
Purging the tenantry of light.

Serpentine…the river flows…slowly through crag and cleft
Consuming…fallen trees over the shallow ledge
Ever moving in a measured pace down argentite slopes
Adding to the sliding shale over centuries untold

Emblazed on a darker canvas, the dissolution of light
Scattered on the northern gale, swept away in a sea…. a sea of black ash
