The day after the Tsunami hugged the shores,
by a penitent ocean lying low,
in the beach  which lay mauled and scarred,
an old woman and a girl stood homeless and hugging 
and not far away
a  bower lay  crumpled, within which
but stood tall as always  the two-some  
of a neem and a banyan in an unshakeable hug.
