volcano erupts

beachside village in peril --

    monster 'neath the waves

water wall rises

tsunami washes ashore --

     souls float on blue tide

*For Rick's "Flowing Water" Haiku Contest

    Frightening! This should zap Rick's "Flowing Water" contest. By the way, I have read Frankenstein, once when I was 18, once when I was 25, and once when I was ancient. The movies, most, are pure corn, but then aren't most of them nowadays. Love, Dave

    monster 'neath the waves brings out the reality of the fear and the feel of the impending doom of it all....frightening...i would not want to witness one.... good luck in the contest Carolyn and thanks for your comments! I do appreciate them

    What a neat ideal using a tsunami caused by a volcano for this Haiku, Carolyn. As for your comment. Actually there were two brothers killed in this same accident Carolyn. My best friend and also his older brother. Tradgic for the family losing the only two boys in the family. Only by the mercy of God, for I was at a part time job, that kept me from being with them, for Ulus and I were normally in thoes days always together. Agape, Moses

    I kept thinking about the movie Hereafter while reading this poem. It opens with a huge tsunami that destroys a waterfront village. Very good entry for the contest!

    Hi Carolyn. Thanks for your kind comment on my last piece. I am happy with my lot as my wants are small but I know a lot of families that are really struggling this Christmas. Loved the above. You really spell out the power of nature, which, if it decides to can overcome our defences no matter how well we prepare. Best of luck in the contest, Eamon

    Excellent sketch of Tsunami in most striking words beyond doubt from your evergreen pen. Great write my friend touching the heart and mind. It should be on the top in the contest. My best wishes. I have placed a new Poem 'The Heavenly Lovers' which is linked with a Photo, which you can see by copying the web address & pasting it in the web address column & then enter. Hope you would like it. Love and best wishes in this great season of Christmas festival. ...Ravindra...Carolyn Devonshire
