Tsunami

a tsunami flows through my life
not just now,
but from the beginningless times;
each time it picks up intensity,
it drowns all things in sight;
the destruction!
growth and dissolution, each time the butterfly emerges
from its chrysalis
it flies higher
skylarking;
eventually, it fades; away from
ordinary sight;
appears to the one with other sight
Is this what man means by divinity?
a butterfly skylarking?
What is divinity? What is humanity?
and what immortality?
the true god appears in the guise of man
so that poorly sighted may
see….
god that
promises nothing, but to inspire
the hidden strength in
man… to go forth and
inwards
