So often the devastator, the destroyer, the damager
Volcanic and furious and fearsome
Frequently the burner, the bringer of pain, the bestower of penance
Forever linked to hell, and fury, and damnation
Forest fires and homewrecking, evacuations and homelessness
But what about friends and warmth and food? The love in the dark?
The memory of where we’ve been; the dreams of where we’ll go?
