Japan earthquake and tsunami
As sudden as it was
Water drank the innocence
Leaving just prayer

Marinela. This is awesome. You have said it all in so few words. I think this is my favorite of what you have written.
‘Water drank the innocence, leaving the prayer.’
Sad that is 🙁 But skillfully summed up in a few words!
what a neat haiku!
Very powerful words!
This is lovely.
Beautifully sad and true…
EARTHQUAKE IN JAPAN- A SHORT POEM
The cruel tremor of March 11
Carrying more momentum than a missile
Triggered the north of Japan
Brought tears out of my eyes
The pretty garden caught fire
Killed the innocent butterflies
Then a Tsunami deluged the cities
That attacked humans like a hound
Levelling tall buildings to ground
Swept factories and demolished homes
Then came a spray of nuclear radiations
The three killers brought the worst massacre
Leaving weeping kids and shouting mothers
Crying widows and worried fathers
Sisters crying and searching brothers
Husbands looking for their wives
But I know the people of Nippon
They are brave and strong
The had gone through the Nuclear Bomb Disaster
They know how to do and what to do
They have the vision and carry the mission
They have the strength
They have the enthusiasm
The architects, whose efforts built Japan
A leading economy and a center of excellence
They will build new homes and schools
New offices and Railway Stations
Hospitals, Roads and Power Stations
They will build a New Japan
This is one of the best haiku I have ever read in my life. Not kidding. It chills and comforts me at the same time. Very powerful. Very effective writing.
This is so heart rendering!
Your Haiku tells the sad story in short. Very sad. Good writing, Marinela. Blessings to you…
IT IS REALLY VERY SAD AND I HOPE THAT THIS INCIDENT WILL SOON RECOVER IN JAPAN AND BUILD A NEW JAPAN!!!!

Remembrance: March 2011
the day moon draws closer
more shadows than March light
among the sunlit wrecks
the sounds of gulls
In an old man
