Mother Nature, sing a song beyond the dark; a tune just south of calamity. Where sweet melodies part ominous clouds, and no blood bears the storm. Mother Nature, have mercy on those who know firsthand your fury is no hoax. Their lives have been reduced to rain and ruin; no shine, no sleep, no warmth. Mother Nature, may we soon breathe more easily, gain more clarity. May your waters recede to a place of calm, where countless souls can rebuild their homes.
