Green in Gray

by The Cheesesellers Wife

Green in Gray

Lava once flowed here to meet the ocean in hissing and steam
Cooled into writhing shapes that tear our feet as we clamber over
Drawn to the bright signs of encroaching life
Orange yellow lichens spattered as if by Pollock
And one clasp of vibrant green in the gray
Washed by tides, holding fast, reaching to the sun
Proclaiming conquest
