Human structures, man-made wires
Symbolic street signs, store front banners
Vehicles that often break, windows that crack
A fire escape painted red
A child napping in their bed
Telephone poles, landscaped bushes
But where do you see the real power
in this photograph?
That has the say as to whether the houses
will stay standing?
Existing all around us
ready to destroy or to nurture?
To tear apart, or to caress
To sooth, or to flood with dominance…
Nature has the power to lull us to sleep
with her soothing sounds of rain…
To frighten us with her electricity
that streaks violently with no harness
across the sky that we breath
