While the earth shook, 

they cringed amid the tremors.

Those unnatural shudderings, growling

forth from a place beyond reason

that threatened to kill peace.

Loud bellowing

meant to tremble land.


All at once,

the earth gave up her bark,


took her quaking to another place.


Within their still haven,

now hushed and without quiver,

they exhale tension, 

feel that sense of serenity

as they replace shattered bits of raw nerves

with quiet, unmarred calm.
