Tsunami, the killer waves

Tsunami, the killer waves......... When the news of tsunami came crashing to me my heart felt with sorrow and was reckless insane Unbearable to see our beautiful villages and towns were destroyed and left our dreams empty and drained Can we wash away our tears running down when the killer tsunami washed away our land Can we walk through the beach sand again where our loving children were taken away by tsunami Can we hold the sea moans its hunger and prey while stealing our souls in the depth of our loving hearts Can we put this blame on our Lord who is our saviour while arrogant ocean struck down us with flint Can we scold the nature that betrayed us while thousand of lives did claim Can we rise our lost loved ones again from the sea when the ocean became calm Is there neither any judgment nor courtrooms to argue but God knows that the nature has won.

This is the tragedy that can come to some unfortunate people. It's a very powerful poem and I am surprised I never saw it yet. Very well written, Ravi.

How painful are your words! How achingly powerful are the imageries of devastation and sorrow! How powerless Man is in front of hostile and wrathful Nature! We can but surrender in humility seeking mercy and grace.. Faith in God provides balm for our tormented and grieving souls.. May God bless and protect Humanity. My deepest sympathy and regards Ravi. A great work. A FAV. Be blessed always.

Your poem is heartfelt and depicts the devastation which quakes and tsunami leave in their wake. Nature can be such a gracious servant, but there are moments when it rebels with grave results. Regards // paul
