Earth Groans

Earth Groans

Shakes and foams

Volcanoes spew

Oceans roar

Fire consumes

Chaos in the clouds

Bring destruction

To the land

Why this groaning

This upheaval

When will it cease

And subside

 

Another kind

Of shaking

A groaning

A fire inside

Each one of us

Is in the making

The treasure in us

Is being

Tried and tested

Extracted

From the clay

Together with creation

There will be a

Revealing

An uncovering of the glory
