winter haiku d'hiver – roiling clouds roll in = nuages turbulants





roiling clouds roll in
teeming with snow  –
bone-chilling gusts!

nuages turbulants
enneigés jaillisent –
rafales glaciales !

nuvole fredde
piene di neve -
vento glaciale!

by lava waves pouring down
in an ashen storm

the destruction of Pompeii 620

Pompeii noyé,
inondé par la lave,
orage de cendres

Richard Vallance


On 24 August AD 79, the volcano Mount Vesuvius burst out in a massive explosion which completely buried the city of Pompeii in ashes. At first, lava rained down the city, followed by an ash storm with massive lightning which killed almost everyone in the city. It is one of the worst natural disasters in all of history.

Le 24 août 79 ap. J.C., le volcan, le Vésuve, a éclaté dans une explosion massive qui a complètement enterré la ville de Pompeii en cendres. Au début, la lave s’est versé sur la ville, et ensuite un orage de cendres accompagné de coups massifs d’éclairs a tué presque tout le monde dans la ville. C’est une des pires catastrophes naturelles de l’histoire.
