In the dark Inner recesses of Our Earth, Nature moves forthrightly.
Natural Forces… interact, provoke and prevail. Grow.
The soon visible shudders, stresses and strains of the Planet in Motion…
or play. Smoke.
Here and there… pinpricks of Light… flare, flame…
and grow as well. Fire.
A Fire Inside… the Earth.
Burning bright now.
Consistently seeking new fuel for that-
Inner Earth Fire.
Remains… of simply Ash.
A Mountain above.
(…Slideshow Images vis Pixabay…)
The Volcano stirs.
Inside and out.
From Our World Legends.
Where there’s smoke, fire, ash,..
…from whose very name we coined such a Mount.
Is again… brought sharply to Mind.
Burning brightly… forthrightly…
To Juno and Jupiter…
a Son is born.
Forthrightly… or not.
A Baby thus Divine born… shines Bright.
The Council of Gods… of Rome… were…
overall quite pleased.
Known in the Legends as the ‘ Dei Consentes ‘.
Till the Official Baby Viewing… that is.
When and then.
The Mood was lost… went Ugly.
Indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too.
So Our World Legends sayeth. Herein.
Baby indeed was of such a ungodly look,.. Mother Juno.
Wanted to lose him so it seems,.. so,..
Off a Cliff.
This was the closest one available.
Mount Olympus… was it’s name.
He,.. The Ugly Baby God… though yet unnamed;..
survived… basically unharmed… somehows.
A not so divine and eternal… Sore foot.
The only scar… to remain.
Tis and twas… a God after All.
Even if a Baby One.
Now though… Baby steps… with a lil’ limp…
So… dear ol’ Divine Mommy Dearest Juno… threw him.
Into a Fiery Mountain.
Then told Ugly Baby God With A Limp- to stay…
Till he was a Man-God.
The Limp… stayed… also.
Named when then,..
was done and dusted.
Still Ugly it seems… and still…
With now though… a unique and rather heart warming…
All… Fired Up… as well.
Especially after being cooped up and in a Mountain.
The Vulcanisms of Science.
The Modern Sciences have spent much time and peoples Studying such aspects of Nature.
The fierceness of some of the eruptions have caused many incidents of mayhem and destruction.
Common throughout Our History and Herstory.
Legends are many also.
3 Main Volcanic Types.
Gaps, Holes and/or Ruptures of Our Earth’s Crust.
The Tectonic Plates… some 17 of them form this Crust.
Whence and where around they meet…
Earthquakes and Volcanoes… do too.
Grow… more likely that is.
The Image below shows the connections therein.
In the Main and Generally.
The formation of Magma appears to drive Volcano Locale.
Being heated and thus less dense than the surrounds of Inner Earth Rocks and so forth.
It drives… Upward.
From the Inside… out.
Forming the Volcano… with Lava Flow…
usually flowing soon after.
After erupting and escaping from his Inner Earth…
Housing and Schooling.
Vulcan too,… moved on.
Flowing sorta straight back into… Society Divinity.
Unpretty… or not.
Vulcan gets the Creative Urges.
Married… too. To Venus.!?.
What the Frick.?.
His Talents… All could use.
Divine… or not.
Thrones, Statuary and Objects of Art, Jewellery, Weaponry and Armor… also.
Even a Bronze Giant… named as Talus.
The Legends of Jason and the Argonauts know this Gigantes One well.
Other Legendary Giants such as Cyclopes worked with him too whilst he attended to the Forging and Crafting of many items for the Gods and Goddesses of these Ancient Times.
Achilles and Mars… The God of War,..
more too did visit… oft.
His work was exemplary because of the then new and unique Fire then Water Tempering and Forging Processes that his Talents… knew so well. Deeply in fact. ALL… Fired Up it seems.
From living in that Ol’ Greek Mount… that was on Fire. Later Greek Science Bright Spark types would apply such lateral thinking to their own Weapons of Mass Destruction…
and created that good ol’ Greek Liquid Fire of Yore.
That Water could not douse.
The Master Blacksmith of the Gods… Vulcan become.
Accruing rewards, payments and accolades along the Ways.
A Wife… also.
Venus was her name.
A… Gift of the Gods.!.
So these Legends sayeth.
From Zeus… actually.
For Crafting such fine and Fiery Thunderbolts Divine.
Now… yes,.. You read it right.
Irony Themes within and herein this Legend it seems… too.
Unpretty… as well.
The Ugly God With A Limp… got the Girl.
The Girl… Vulcan got.
And not just any Girl.
The one who sleeps in Giant Seashells.
Sleeps on silken Sea Foam.
Long Hair. Naked under etc etc etc.
Ugly… is not at all… in her resume.
At All… indeed,..
in deed and in fact… as well.
Married… By the gift of giving-Divine indeed,..
in deed and in fact… too.
Though… no Babies therein… ever ever do… ensue.
Only the Gods… and Goddesses know…
the reasons why… or why not. As the heated-case may therein be.
For the Legends do state the case… that each and both…
become parents of other’s Children. Later.
Such… was their case therein.
So Our World Legends do say… also.
Smoke, Fire and Ash.
The Mountains of Fire oft… include and intrude upon Our World Legends.
Sorrow, Death and Destruction… ensue.
Vesuvius and Pompeii.
Krakatoa and Banten.
Mont Pelee and Saint-Pierre.
Currently such Disasters are striking again.
Hawaii,.. Indonesia,.. Guatemala also.
Best and good Wishes… To All therein.
The Biggest and Brightest.?. of the Fiery Mounts that the Sciences seem to have located has become known as the Pompeii of the East. As with that Ancient City of Yore… an entire Population perished.
The following Year, of 1816 had it’s Seasons put askew.
The blast of noise was heard more than 2,000 kms away. The ensuing Volcanic Acid Rain swept as far as Borneo for example. The Mount itself has over 20 Cones and Domes.
A Death Toll of at least 70,000 People.
Tis monitored and closely watched by Science… still.
The Fire Within…
There is much to this Element.
Fire out there… within also.
We too use a Natural Fire form.
The Term we use for a constructed Mountain = The Pyramid.
Fire in the Middle.
Digestion and Natural extraction of Nutrients by Our Bodies is done with warmth.
The Temperature of the Goodies within is raised.
Digested and extracted thus and thereof.
Hot stuffed Nutrients in Liquids especially easily absorbed.
The warm blood that surrounds Our Digestive System and the ongoing processes ensures these run smooth and sure.
Cooling drinks chill that a lil’ too.
Starvation and Alcohol to excess… also.
A Balance is required for optimum… Life.
Volcanoes too… Live within… Our World Ice.
Another… has a Underwater Lake nearby… as well.
So Our World Legends of Science do say.
Life per se too… can live within… Fire.
Science has developed a knack for looking at very small things.
Looking closely… within a Volcano as well.
The somewhat intricate Life of such as Bacterium has only been seen recently within Our World Legends…
History and Herstory…also.
With Instruments of Great Magnification.
Various Forms noted that utilise what we Term… Spores.
Also… somewhat impervious to Heat or Cold,.. Radiation, Chemicals,..
even Lack of Food and Water.
The Photo below contains some fiery finer details… therein.
Fire-light… and Fire-Life.
Thiolava Veneris… the name of Life midst Fire.
Those who Live on or directly observe Nature understand how Fire also stimulates Life.
Natural Bush-fires bring about a resultant cleared field with many Minerals and so forth available for absorption.
When such as the Rains come, the new growth oft luxuriant and varied.
This effect of Fire and Smoke etc… also applies to several Seed Forms.
The Seed Outer Shell is cracked and opened with the Heat.
So now precious Water can penetrate;..
allowing hopefully Germination and Regeneration to occur.
Life effected from and through Fire.
A Fire Inside… smolders still.
To Feed, Kill, Live and Survive.
So too… Mother Nature.
The Element of Fire.
Vulcan as well.
The Legendary Fire therein and within.
Our World Legends.
All Fired Up.
