Dedicated to Tsunami victims 
in Japan who lost life & property 
in Quake of 8.9 magnitude 

>^< W.A.T.E.R

^ Adaptable
stays in bound in dams
sacrifices self in dousing fire

^ Flexible
takes colour of soluble
changes course in rocks

^ Benevolent
life line of body
balancer of ecology

>^< W.A.T.E.R.
when not in Element

^ Devastating
floods, tsunami wrecking havoc
no rain causing draught

>^< P.R.A.Y.E.R
stop reclamation, contamination
save Water, save Life

(C) Hitendra Mehta

    Oh, Hitendra, the devastation of this tsunami has been horrible and your poem is magnificent. They say the tsunami is headed for Hawaii and may even reach the West Coast of the U.S. I pray no more lives are claimed. Indeed, prayer is all we have now. Blessings to you for posting such a heartfelt poem! Love, Carolyn
