Life Amid Chaos

A strong thunderstorm

lightening starting a fire

loud noises in the chaos

the situation is dire

Fire spread through the land

reducing the sturdy trees to rubble

wildlife ran to escape

the massive trouble

Death is mourned

as if there is no tomorrow

looking around

there is much sorrow

The erstwhile forest

knew that this is not the end

the sun rose this morning

time to mend

From deep below

new seeds sprout

nourishing sun and rain

raises new life without a doubt

Time passes

squirrels return to the trees

birds singing in the air

wildlife again runs free

Out of the chaos

comes new life

renewal of the land

stronger after the strife
