James Lee Jobe
-- for my grandniece, Addison
It can be overwhelming, the unfairness of it all.
The randomness. But there is beauty
As well. Here, a death – there, a birth.
A tidal wave. A rainbow after a spring rain.
An ancient forest burns. A child
Is saved from a well. Beauty, yes,
And chaos, too. Harshness and sweet quiet.
Welcome to the world.
