Human Family

[image from time.com]

Ten thousand bodies
they say
may be
found
along the shore.
Ten thousand
mothers and fathers,
ten thousand
daughters and sons.

There cannot be
a soul
on this planet
that does not
share
the grief
at this loss
of human
family,
alarm
at this
demonstration
of
planetary
distress.

  1. I would be hard pressed to think of a country I feel less affinity for than Japan (Iran maybe?), but even I am horrified.

  3. Sherry,
    It is mind altering seeing the videos on TV. I still can't believe what I am seeing. I can't imagine enduring this...
    My heart n' prayers go out to this country~

  6. The extent of destruction was totally unprecedented; and it's still going on. $ nuclear power stations in danger. 2 explosions. I feel awful that it didn't stop with an earthquake and a tsunami. And i'm also with you in grieving for Japan, though i know that it is a resilient country and will bounce back.
