WATERFALLS, RAINFORESTS and VOLCANO

Now for a little side-trip.

The following are shots of Tabacon Hot Springs - Natural waterfalls and pools heated by the nearby volcano.

Feel the heat as you sink into the rushing water. Take a jaunt through the rainforest- awed by the amazing vegetation. Feel the power of the volcano as its' groans resonate through the countryside






One final shot of the volcano



The Volcano


The volcano
has been brewing
for some time
Smoke signals
what the future will bring.
Silently
deep within its belly
hate is harbouring
resentment is rising
unaware
we
watch from a distance
until
the uncontainable
the unavoidable
Explodes
We are left
crying molten tears
that burn down our face
until all that we had built
between us,
is black
smoky
and dead

Beautiful and lush looking!
And the poem, well, we could all have had those sentiments about things in our lives at one time or another.

Ack!! Does anybody know why most of the pics aren't showing up? They worked when I first posted.
If you have an idea, let me know
Thanks

Re-posted these darn pics so now they show up. Don' know why that happens.

Love, love, love the pictures.

And I must admit... I'm a bit jealous.

I was excited about the yellowed grass in my fields. =)

Glad to know you're surrounded by all of this beauty. What a wonderful place to heal.
