Molten Dawn

"O Dionysus, we feel you near,

stirring like molten lava

under the ravaged earth,

flowing from the wounds of your trees

in tears of sap,

screaming with the rage

of your hunted beasts."

Euripides (The Bacchae)


The volcano Mt Ruapehu is clearly visible on the horizon, some 320 kms/200 miles away, as the dawn light reflects on the breaking surf on the black volcanic sand of the Kapiti Coast, New Zealand.
