Destructive Beauty

Even something as destructive and potentially dangerous as fire can be beautiful, don't you think?. And while we often hear it described in “bad” situations, it can really be quite “good” and of course, just “is”. It rejuvinates. It transforms old, dead, and decayed matter back into energy. It makes way for new growth and indeed life itself to re-emerge. Yes, beautiful indeed.
