“All great changes
are preceded by chaos.”
– Deepak Chopra
All that once was no longer exists;
the surroundings in my life have become volcanic
and I am arrested by the intensity.
Inside I am teeming with magma,
but escape from the all-consuming heat
is not an option.
I keep waiting for the eruption,
the final stage of this natural disaster,
yet the flow cannot be disrupted.
My environment will have to transform on its own,
creating solid realities
that originate from intrusive thinking.
I have to allow elements to fully crystallize
so that I can unearth clarity.
