There is something about raging waters

And vicious thunderstorms that leave me breathless

And in awe of their total capacity for destruction

Total capacity for destruction…

Capable of de-

Structuring natural monuments and

Rushing waters sifting away at the silt

And realign riverbeds and make shift

Lean-to’s that serve as refuges out of

The harsh waters.

It’s fantastic that the same thing that

You hide from, that you shy away from

Is the same thing that you run towards

When the elements turn

And those same waters that could drown you

Serve as your salvation.
