with the circle of friends around,
mostly plots still unfilled but here
and there a freshly turned mound.

And it’s here she...

Premium Member EARTHQUAKE FOOTLES

shocking
tremors 

rock earth
shake land

plates drift
rocks skid

seismic
waves beat

earth quakes
ground breaks

rupture
fissure

buildings
crumble

heart pounds
fear rules
 
body
trembles

rubble 
surrounds

men sigh
all cry

many
are dead

many
injured

death waits
loss mounts

tumult
turmoil

panic !
havoc !
