Earth Groans

Earth Groans

Shakes and foams

Volcanoes spew

Oceans roar

Fire consumes

Chaos in the clouds

Bring destruction

To the land

Why this groaning

This upheaval

When will it cease

And subside

 

Another kind

Of shaking

A groaning

A fire inside

Each one of us

Is in the making

The treasure in us

Is being

Tried and tested

Extracted

From the clay

Together with creation

There will be a

Revealing

An uncovering of the glory

What I Learn from Suzie

When you are caught

Swimming in a lake

Between two volcanoes

And you think you see

A dead fish

Remember

It’s just a lily pad

 

Those volcanoes

Will erupt someday

But you probably won’t

Be around to see them

And if you are

Chances are

You won’t be

In the path of the lava

And the lily pad is

Just that

And that’s how it looks

To see a glass

Half full
