The Earth Shakes

The earth shakes, bellows, lurches,
opens beneath her feet.

Leaving her unaware, she falls.
Leaving her cold, she falls.
Leaving her numb, she falls.

Encompassed by darkness, she lands.

Struggling for days, she awakens.

The earth shakes, bellows, lurches,
extends a hand.

Slowly, she rises from the darkness into her new found light.
