Season of Apocalypse

In Greek the word means
unveiling or unfolding
to reveal something
we had not seen before
perhaps cannot even
begin to recognize
because we have
no frame of reference
for it to find a home
in our thought
So it’s true
we will need an apocalypse
to find our way
to anything new
A massive storm
of incomprehensible change
A complete freeze
of our past
and a blinding
sunrise of warmth
to thaw new pathways
we have never
walked before

[Prompt 7: Write a poem titled Season of the (fill in the blank).]
