You are here
Softly, silently , with no hurrah
a single rose rises proudly from the debris of the fire.
flamingo pink, it defies the devils of destruction
Deep wisdom of the earth sends fine threads of green grass
tendrils of life from the fecund, stirring earth
rising from the flaming flare of ruin.
Birds flitter and flutter in a canopy of scorched, leafless trees
Nature is doing what nature will
replenish, restore, revive and rejoice in new life.
