A natural phenomenon (whirling winds and lightning)
Can strike at any time (thunderstorms so frightening)
A natural disaster (quakes and hot volcanoes)
Is chaos left behind (hurricanes, tornadoes)
Everyone’s connected, in this global world of ours,
We’re called to act with justice and compassion;
And agencies around the world work tirelessly for hours,
Providing help and care, in humble fashion!

‘The phenomenon develops calmly, but it is invisible, unstoppable. ... One feels, one sees it born and grow steadily; and it is not in one's power to either hasten it or slow it down.’
~ Leon Foucault, 1819-1868, French physicist
