Mt Tarawera, North Island, New Zealand

Mt Tarawera, North Island, New Zealand by James

The 1886 Ghost Waka at Lake Tarawera (prededing the same eruption)

"...earlier on the same morning the waters of the lake rose suddenly over its whole expanse, and as unexpectedly subsided again in a matter of minutes." 
-- Te Ara Encyclopedia

Pressure clad in ghostly clothing
nudged those visual people there,
choosing images as dreams do,
painting these on willing air:

They were wearing flaxen clothing.
They did not respond to hails.
They were bound for Tarawera
as if gliding there on rails.
