A New Start

Waiting for a storm to break.
Needing life to take a turn.
Wind whipping in, rain pouring down.
Cleansing all the underground.
Trust the basic nature of it all.

Change is in the air today.
Mother nature makes her way
the only life we need..
Canceling the civil creeds,
she dares outlive them all.

Jungles grow where once a city thrived.
Bumble bees still tending to their hives.
For better or for worse, this life
is all we have to live.
Sometimes it's better just to give
a kindness in return.

Fire burns, the underbrush
is turning all to ash.
Smoke choking air that once
was breathable.
Waiting for a storm to break.
Needing life to take a turn.

God is dead, his chosen ones
have made such terrible mistakes.
Breaking with the wisdom of the heart.
Rhythm, pulse - a great gestalt,
at last the rain will start.
Washing all the many sins away.

See the children dance and play.
Rainbow beauty leads the way.
Mother nature making a new start...
