Haiku

Japan earthquake and tsunami

As sudden as it was
Water drank the innocence
Leaving just prayer

  7. 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

    Remembrance: March 2011

    ground swell
    the day moon draws closer

    Iwate Prefecture
    more shadows than March light

    Kesennuma
    among the sunlit wrecks
    the sounds of gulls

    Onagawa snow
    In an old man
    night sobs
