祈り

13 Mar

as sea waters recede
tears of Nippon
freely flow

may the brave heart
of a rising sun
dry them both

    Beautiful prayer. The Japanise have proved themselves to be resiliant over and over. They will come out of this; if only it could have been done without the loss of life.

      Short, simple and heartfelt. May the affected recover from the tsunami and the quake, like they did after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks. They have the strength in them and i know that they’ll emerge victorious.

    Beautifully stated and so very sad.

    This is the best ‘Japanese tsunami’ work I’ve read. All of them have been solid – but you abso-tively nailed it. Frakking perfect.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We’re sending aid through the United Church of Christ. I have a friend in Kanagawa Station and am so worried… haven’t heard from him. Please know we are pressuring our government to send more aid.

    Peace, Amy Barlow Liberatore
