Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


23feb10 The Day After: Garden City


many hotels
damaged
shocked guests

Christchurch
mortally wounded
garden mourns

no rooms
for tourists
now to stay

tourists evacuated
troubles fly away
holiday memories

took
an earth shattering
turn
