Old Faithful

by Miriam Hurdle


Underground water

Heated and rises.

Steam forms,

Bubbling upward.

Steam expands,

Water column soars.

Bubbles continue,

Lifting the water above.

Splashes, overflows.

The Geyser.

  1. I know. At least she is the predictable one so far, of water eruption… yet. 🙂

  2. I had not heard of it before. Now I read about it in Internet and saw a video as well. Thanks!! Good capture in poem.

  3. This geyser has the shortest predictable eruption time, so the tourists mostly watch this one. Another geyser has 7 to 9 hours of predictable eruption time, that wouldn’t be favorable for tour feature.
