eruption day: Happy Anniversary Mt St Helens


Everything becomes new again

Through catastrophe and turmoil

Growth emerges from the rocks

Nutrient-rich and ever powerful

What has been decimated

Will be even more beautiful than before

Life with new roots

Flight with new wings

Scoured earth

Is a canvas

For our wildest imaginings

Love of the earth

In its dynamism and growth

All the answers

Beneath the surface

A little tear

All it takes

To wet the soil

And a new world

To flow

To grow
