Volcano Eyes

In the mighty mountains of the north dwelled the golden phoenix Goddess of fire, queen of ash, her beauty rivaled Venus Most powerful, most worthy, but exiled and betrayed Yet it is the hunter, not the gazelle who should truly be afraid For two cold years she lay in wait, trapped ‘neath the avalanche ofContinue reading “Volcano Eyes”
