Change in the Weather

    Old politics 
smashed on the rocks 
   by the powerful 
tides of the new 
The weather is changing 
Can we still confront 
society's storms?
 A cry of joy
wakes us!
    All hope is not lost 
From the vortex known as the past 
comes a breath of fresh air 
What we once dreamed 
remains alive 
We will not be 
   daunted by 
voices of despair 
The tide rushes in 
and rushes out 
leaving behind 
  the shifting sands 
As we walk in the tidal pools 
It dawns on us 
   that all the joy we anticipated 
    May still be 
coming 
May still have a wondrous
revival
