1  Miatianna                                           2  Miatianna                            
    Stands alone in the rubble                       Outside, standing in the mud                     
     Looking for MaMa                                   Crying for Daddy              
                                  3  Maitianna
                                      Sorrounded by disaster
                                      Where is brother, Juan

4  An orphan, at six                                  5  How will she survive?
    Her tummy growls from hunger                Let us Pray to the Most High
    Her Throat parched from thirst                 A Prayer is answered
                                     6  Miatianna
                                         Moving to America
                                         Knowing Love again

                               Inspired by the Haitian Earthquake
                               Dedicated to all the Haitian Nation

    Your Senryus are like a film flickering in my mind of a real time horrific, tragic silent movie. I'll turn the sound on later. This is all I can fathom for now. God have mercy on them and theirs. . Excellent reporting. -Robert

    This is a very thought provoking write as to what can I do to help the situation? Am I too old to take on some responsibility to help? Keep the enlightening pen flowing. Sara

    Oh, HG, this is so moving. We have seen news reports featuring children such as the one you describe. I hope all Americans will open their hearts to these orphans. Love, Carolyn

    VERy very nice, HG, putting all these stanzas together to make one longer poem about an orphan. Is it a true story you saw on the news or something. A great idea you had to do this! Thanks for your comment today. LUv, andrea
