On August 21, 2013. Just How Can You Write

Just how can you write in a storm?

When your thoughts are not yours but the earths

When all you can do is wait

And grieve how others bear?


Just how can you write in growls of the sky?

And natures' anger and creature's woe

In waves of rain and thieves of grain

In turbulent seasons, echoes of pain?


Just how can you write, how can you think?

When words are sick, and you just pray

When sky is bleak and days are gray

 When all's not well and the sun delays?


When your thoughts are not yours but the earths

And your heart shakes like mountains

And your fear grows like mud

You are an island in a box of chips

A drop of vaccine, an arrow in the wind

Tight hugs of air and  hands that hold

Until in God's breath, bells chime!
