Remembering 3/11


End of a Dream

C-sharp minor
plays through the eaves
of this house
wind-cold emptiness, the ambient noise
of destruction
where laughter once lived.

Shoji, last opened
to plum-blossom whispers
now lachrymose with silent

a bird singing
for no-one.


Act of God

Power of Poetry

    • Thanks, Gabe. It was probably the worst spectre in terms of natural and consequent man made disasters I’ve seen in my lifetime. Too terrible.
