Nature’s personality comes in habits and surprises. In many parts of the worlds, this capricious reality is embraced. In other parts…


Mornings After
by Odin Roark

Sunrises remain,
but not as always.
for first light brings noises again,
voices,
metal on metal,
rock against rock.

Birds stay mum for now,
high in leftover trees,
where leaves of upper branches
hold fast their morning dew,
waiting out today’s quavers,
from tremors lurking deep below.

As fractured hearts beg to mend,
screams and cries of loss
vibrate painful echoes downward,
filling Nature’s tremulous air,
with man’s helpless defense
to aftershocks waiting.

well said. thanks.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 5/3/2015
The morning after a great earthquake always brings fear of more. Some lives will never be the same, although the birds, perhaps losing the nest of young, will survive better than those in man-made coffins thought to protect from the elements.

A reminder of how fragile life is in the geological lifespan of earth.

Ron
