Lightning sweeps across The palette of storm clouded Sky, blindingly bright, Picking a tree on which to Dividing destructive strike. At the bottom, torn From the rich life-giving loam An olive hued Shoot arises to climb ably So lavender blooms lively In winding waves set Beauty where death might have been A stalwart final Force, but it could not so cleave Nature from its directive Nor the love of life From a continuance which Inaugurated In the depths of time, never Leaves barren what begins primed.
Today was one of those days, A late start, but on time, An appointment that tried my mind A leave-taking ahead of time A lunch most divine With conversation that brought Me back in sync with life.

Bear with me as I reset, and process What was for me an incredible day.
