"Fancy meeting you here!"

The Thunder  and The Deep

Everything is within.

There is difficulty in getting started;

Strength is required.


There is strength to be discovered.

The seedling endures listlessly,

Yet will cleave the rock when nourished.


Eyes roll inward and eyelids flutter;

Find that spark in the deep.

Acknowledge the glint in others.

You will chance upon those who see.
