Eruption Nears (revisited)
The tectonic plates of governance remain restless
like a mountain in the clouds
commit to see or not to see
Thus evolves the Bard's question
"...Whether 'tis nobler in the mind
to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
or to take arms against (unseen) troubles
and by opposing, end them?"
But "them" is arguably both a societal and individual challenge
As with Nature's balance
Societal stability can ill afford ignoring obstacles
let alone "...unseen troubles..."
But first comes awareness
Without managing and regulating mountain paths and routes
the nature of strength becomes
but a landslide of scree-momentum
rushing toward the hollow bottom
where the dark caldron of ignorance
keeps rancid the valley to feed upon
Lest we forget Truth
Even a flower's blind wisdom
feels the sun's integrity
opens to its energy
this light for growth
knowing to deny the obvious
is to wither and succumb
Is it possible
some seek not enlightenment
but capricious beliefs?
while banging drums?
while hanging mirrors?
All the while
molten cores of pressure
await the moment
when shifting plates of change
lose the battle to contain
