Secret Arts: Quake

Allow me
to illuminate
the secret art
of earth.

A potent force
if applied correctly.
To create and move
the very foundations
of this world
through tremors,
landslides,
and earthquakes
requires immeasurable patience
and time.
Yet this humbling power
also creates
through immense pressure
and heat
the most remarkable stones
this world has ever seen.
Dazzling diamonds
radiant rubies
shimmering sapphires
captivating citrines
and elegant emeralds.

So, too,
is the art
of the mind.
For only through
trails and tribulations
can we forge ourselves
to become more resilient
than any stone.

Humbling, indeed.
