~ When Fire Destroys All Else ~

Under the banksia there will be life
flames rejuvenate and coax the new growth
Only the natives will burst into bloom
when fire destroys all else

Soft is the white ash powdering the world
the soot and the coals seem beyond hope
but look to the banksia to find the new life
when fire destroys all else

I’m like the banksia rooted deep in this soil
with branches that reach to the sky
Trouble will scorch me and trauma alight
but I shall endure and bloom with regrowth
when fire destroys all else
