On a Landslide

The earth surrendered to the rains
And slid to meet the river down
Test for the Brakes and machines
Quick decisions
Some good and some to be seen
Roots uprooted, wrong place at the wrong time
Their youth, their age swept
By the pride of rivers and rain
Another big machine comes along
Clears the debris and varied green corpses
What was once a camera’s delight
Became a visual nightmare
Hope alive, recuperating strength
In the breath of the roots left behind
