Recoil /

Black Box (Complete)

The weather was absolutely perfect on this morning,
so we could see everything very clearly.
You knew that there had been a terrible eruption
but you couldn’t see any machinery,
you just see this collapsing ice.
When we got closer, the pilot said
there was something on the radar
that he hadn’t seen the day before.
Then we saw for the first time
what had happened in the crater.
We saw nothing but black ice,
covered with ash and then water
with floating ice blocks and ash at the bottom.
We only got a very brief glimpse
but you really felt
you were seeing something nobody had seen before.
I got really afraid.
My heart missed a beat.
I felt this had already happened
but I was about to see it again....
