If this is how the holy procedure proceeds
what else can I do
except accept the destruction of the old
the disintegration of how things were
and nurture the unknown new life
whose green shoots give little indication
of what they are to become …
and they in their turn will become old, and decay –
an eternal process of cosmic evolution …
it calls to us –
and we can choose to join in…, or not
enjoy the revolution…, or rot.
