Deluge in Australia

The azure sky faded into oblivion,

floods of tears permeated the earth,

drowning cars and dwellings

up to the rooftops, earthly treasures perished,

and for some, their last breath they drew.

Unprecedented! —a word that once more

echoed from the burning bush

that licked the forest to ashes!

What short memories we had even when

the space between disasters shrank.

From our deepest lament over the glitter

of what we once worshipped,

our eyes at last opened to a new awakening:

who really is the supreme Lord of the Dance,

and the meaning of why we exist.
