Lake Posted May 26, 2009 Share Posted May 26, 2009 Life waits inside us… Life waits inside us like a spark struck from flint. Life is a new bud atop an old branch. Life is ceaseless as streams running towards the sea. Life is that sleeping, plump infant trapped in the debris from an 8.0-magnitude earthquake. He sucks in milk and blood dripping from his mother’s nipples, breathes peacefully in a narrow space, arched by mother’s body and shoulders. It is May, a time of May flowers and Mother’s day. In the rocking arms of a rescuer, he stares, smiles around, trying to make out who these faces are. Life shines in his innocent, curious eyes.
