Government Public Domain Photo Distant bubbles crack on the horizon

summoning the heat and glaze from their sleep

to walk again on the surface
as they did on creation morning

in that shimmering moment
we are returned to the simple parts
of our construction
that we have always been

though somehow reluctant to say it

now,
if lips and tongue were still intact
one might say that we have found
a small measure of peace

amid the heat and ash
