calls out among the masses
To see whom, in even weak voice, will respond.
returns in lonely waves.
cries out in pain at the void
That once held his treasured children.
resounds in mocking blows.
resolves to show his lost
The crisis of meaning their folly insures.
compounds in cataract form.
first commands the heavens
To enact a siege of absolute darkness.
precedes darkness with blindness.
turns to the earth
And orders an attack by way of elements.
embraces the pain with self-loathing.
comes with final assault
That lays itself bare, in full form, to the soul.
engulfs the remnant relentlessly.
dismantles the proud with the sun
And brings the humble up to match his light.
sings in beauty of understood fragility.
On pastures of grace the treasured set roots anew;
with the purpose to truly establish life.
