As the reborn green follows a wildfire,
or freshened air a tempestuous storm,
and replenished earth a volcano’s ire,
so disaster humankind does transform.

Shock of death enlivens innate wisdom.
Neglected intuition awakens
with an unforeseen perspective prism
that unearths a light amongst the ruin.

As blinders and shackles of habit are
ripped asunder, and beyond the solar
plexus body blow that does bluntly jar,
an outlook rebirth opens quite polar.

So, with catastrophe we can elope
in an unknown yet certain future hope.
