A bowl full of warm tears

are offered for four thousand

lives shaken by a waking Earth.

Screaming buildings overhead,

groaning fields and crumbling

concrete underfoot. Swallowed

by the horrors of what was just

felt and seen as familiar

and serene.  

  
Quieted voices will no longer

hail a friend in greeting or

soothe  a child's small losses

because their world was changed

to Earth-quivered rubble.
