The sky swallows the land
as the seas engulf us
we become the storm
once we are within it
no division
between nature and humanity
as we rage and roar with the tides
in a struggle older than the gods
between the untamed elements
and a contained civilization
we escape the confines
of expectation and control
at last becoming the hurricane
we have held back all these years – Caroline A. Slee
