It springs from the ashes

of a devastating fire

and yet I cling

to the chance

that the pain,

the charred ground,

the wasteland,

can somehow provide

the ground, the foundation,

the nutrients

that the soil needs.

And that sometime,

however small and frail,

the little green sprig can grow.
