Lava Planet by J Davidson Hero

I've never been much good at interpreting poetry. but the imagery in this piece is spellbinding.

Are we the inhabitants of the blue green creche? Do we represent the salamander species?

Are the fiery lifeforms potential invaders or allies?

I'm sure I'm way off base on this, but it' a fascinating read.

Thanks for your comments Gino. This poem was inspired by the discovery of COROT-7b which was announced in February of 2009. In the poem I'm trying to speculate about humans in the distant future who are travelling there for colonization aboard a generation ship.
