Gradually

Incrementally

Carefully

Words and expression return

In the wake

Of the storms devastation

Voices emerge and recede

Ebb and flow

Coherence restores

Cohesion comes

And goes

The empty vessel fills

Brim full

Again

Overflowing

And again

Voices emerge and recede

Ebb and flow

 

The Whippoorwills

Will sing

Once more

Sing
