*FICTION*

This came to me when I saw the anguish in this mother's grieving face. Too many are grieving.

In their name, please donate something to the charity of your choice to assist those affected by the tsunami.

It is to them that I dedicate this poem. Pain and loss knows no language, culture or barrier.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
it was a normal day
in paradise
until the abnormal
unthinkable
happened

one minute the sun was
shining the next
God was riding the waves
crashing onshore
terror

my children were with me
they were slapped from
my hands when the waves hit
and i swallowed
the sea

and everything went dark
somehow i lived
but my heart is breaking
i can't find my
children

what have i done to earn
the wrath of God
why punish my children
take me instead
of them

my beautiful village
is ugly now
there is mud everywhere
and the air smells
of death

it was a normal day
in paradise
until the abnormal
unthinkable
happened

and now nothing will be
normal again
UNREALITY
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A powerful write, Karla and true something has happened beyond what most of us have seen in a lifetime.

You are always so brave, Karla, and tackle these issues head on with honesty and yet with such depth of compassion and sensitivity, too. Treasure the questions, seek out the answers, live in love of self and each other. One day, all will be revealed and the bigger picture unveiled. Until then, I know that you are fully aware of the only three things that will remain in an unstable world... TY for this, LOL Kate xx

We all tend to think we are being pusished when we lose someone. I felt this way when I lost my son. It's not a punishment. It's life in a way that is hard for us to understand while still in our mortal forms. Great write and capture of this horrible event.
Reviewed by Ed Matlack 1/9/2005
But what happened there was nothing new, surely the size was bigger than usual, and the destruction was more than the norm, but earthquakes and tsunami's and tidal surges are the NORM in that section of the world, unfortunately...they have just never been this widely publicized...this may just be the beginning of the end, or just a normal occurance...Ed

We thought that after WW11. 20 million killed.

We never know why. God is in everything.

It has stopped their civil war..

Yet over 2000 brits washed away.. That week was the next offer, if I did not choose Cuba, as it was fully booked till then..
