VMC – Vulcan!Not logical Mr. Spock –Roman God of Fire!Far beneath the vale, Brow-sweat cooling molten iron,Tireless Vulcan works.Sparks fly, swords and spears,Armor of gold and silver,Mighty Vulcan works. Son of Jupiter,Raised by sea-nymph Thetis,Bested Great Juno.Hammer shapes Iron,And Great Jupiter’s thunderbolts,On Vulcan’s Anvil.Husband of Venus,Creator of Pandora – Foolish Mankind’s Bane.Fire and Iron and Rage -- Fell Warriors and Fair GodsAlike know Vulcan.Now let me digress –An unfortunate habit –And speak of quarries.Not easy to build!One quarry is a large moat;VMC has scores!Old quarries are deep,Fathoms of water, no beach,Unknown depths, still, cold . . . On warm summer nights,Young lovers swim ‘neath the moon,Fear fueling Desire.Quarries hold secrets,Hidden depths, tender moments,Generations share.Haiku knew a quarry,Long ago and far away;We all have such times.So Haiku will buyFor the moat and memories,Below thirty-five.Captain Haiku
