Dormant

An imposing spire scrapes against the sky
born from ancient movements of molten rock
spewed from beneath the earth to way up high
when the whole land rumbled and shook in shock.

The smokeless mountain sleeps dormant today
but all fear the wrath of the volcano
even though the magma faded away
from shifts in the mantle made long ago.
