As the land of the rising sun lowers

Shaking hands with land and waves

                                    .

Running stares as bare beating feet

Dazed in this haze of disbelief

                                    .

Towns unable to swim quickly drown

Lifetimes of living and forgiving

Turned upside down,

                                    .

Radiant waves of emotion

Wash in from the ocean

Repossessing seaside towns,

                                    .

On the roofs Orchestrated heads

Dismay floating away the dead

Above and below the ground

                                    .

Wailing walls of mothers

Religiously search for sons

Neighbors and daughters,

                                    .

Honorable Father ask Gods

To stop pitiful heart crying

Long enough to die trying

                                    .

Never to bud in Japanese red mud

Old and new loves fly high above

On the wings of a Japanese dove

                                    .

This taste of disaster

Is sadder inside the

Cotton covered mouths,

                                    .

Grace from their face

Replaced in the graves

Placed in the level ground

                                    .

The families not near

Not here, not anywhere

Not anymore,

                                    .

Lie’s in their mind hide

The truth in the rubble

From yesterdays past,

                        .

88 year old grandmother carried on the

Character of a granddaughter’s back

Sacred memories carried in a muddy sack,

.                       .

God save this girl and her world

From this angry sea’s attack

In gods name we of all nations ask.
