Dawkins once said:
“We take so much for granted.
We have become anesthetized
by the familiarity of what’s around us.”
Near a mighty hurricane
Vast, surging and frenetic
Comparable slightly to the pain
Felt from an ineffective anesthetic.
I am not making light of the devastation left in the wake of mother nature.
I endeavor to illustrate that life can serve up the unexpected, the tragic.
At any time.
And it makes me grateful for the good things.
