Growth

Magpie 64

Celebrating on the highest peak
Mere mortals tread
No one gets out alive
But goodness and the charity of others
Keeps the soot and flames far enough away
Coal washes easily from our hands and face
And for a time what is not okay will eventually be okay

Tragic events unfold into unknown blessings
Hearts recover with fresh green
In times of plight, pick up your boots and don’t ask why
Just know that better times will materialize
And with it, new hope
And with it, the landscape of new growth

Great uplifting words.

Hope for renewal well expressed. I agree we must have hope because it keeps us striving but if "In times of plight, pick up your boots and don’t ask why" is our mantra,as it seems to be, we will continue to blunder blindly on until even hope is gone.
PS. I am an optimist.

Powerful renewals come following great devastations... a rebirth springs eternal.
