Grassroots

Under the thunderstorm
the grass is growing

lightning bolts crack the smoke-colored clouds
thunder shakes the sky
while countless creatures tremble below

softly, sweetly
roots are digging deep
nestling into the earth
nourished by the rain
which pours generously
from the dark clouds above

the grass knows
that no storm lasts forever
and so it grows
holding the world together
