Tumbling Rock Cave

A Haiku Poem

In Tumbling Rock Cave,
saltpeter works can be found
to fight those enslaved.

Small mountains of dirt,
like tables set for a meal
with sparkles of chert.

Leaching bins abound,
For gun powder in demand
fight and not be found.

Listen, you may hear,
the echo of solders gone
that dug dirt in fear.

Union solders search,
to find the caves and destroy,
catch them in a lurch.

Two huge columns stand
sparkling like diamonds when wet
like an elephant

Formations abound,
Totem Gallery is great
formations big round.

Like Indian carvings,
all in a row for a show,
if you like caving.

Up the Kings Shower,
to enter the topless pit
gaze up the tower.

Water droplets fall,
like a snow storm in the night
looking up in awe.

Thru Suicide Crawl,
to the Asphalt Ooze of oil
stay against the wall.

The floor seems to move,
like a snake under the carpet,
as the oil migrates.

We come to admire,
Mt. Olympus of the cave
the pillar of fire.
