Haiti 2010

Haiti : January 12....2010-02-03....16: 23 hrs

The dreadful Earthquake struck suddenly
That unsuspecting day in January
From Palace to hut the indifferent Quake
Unleash its wrathful fury,

Buildings crumbled like falling leaves to the ground
Killing and trapping the unsuspecting thousands
In its round

Plumes of dust arose in the air
Amidst screams and groans of its victims' fear
Masks of terror and confusion etched their faces
Of victims fleeing for their lives to safer places
Poor Haiti what have you done
To receive such an awful Fate?

whispering in my ear,

I watched in delight a delicate, golden winged butterfly

Flitting from Flower to flower in the cool open air

And my heart then opened to the might of the Creator and the

Everlasting beauty of His creations.in display

Getting Away From It All

Farewell, Farewell, noisy city, I have had enough of your crowded streets, pollution and incessant babble.

I shall go into the Woods and build myself a cabin amongst the chirping morning birds and summer flowers.

Where I can sit by the babbling brook and read my books of Poetry and Philosophy in Peace.

Where I can look at the wonderful sunset painting the emplty sky with its beautiful colours..

Where I can smell the uplifting fragrance of the wild flowers and enjoy the beauty of Nature while I can.

For I am but a passing shadow in this mystical journey called Life
with it's mixture of Joy and Sadness.
