A Sudden Boom

A sudden boom
A moment’s pause —
A wondering where
Or what the cause
Then back about our chores.
The noise forgot —
The day is hot;
What thought have we for wars:
Until our loved one must depart;
Now it’s our family torn apart:
The strife now is our own.

    A Sudden Boom (Earthquake)

    In a Tokyo hotel a Boom was heard.
    I looked at my wife, but spoke no word.
    It was a rather strong shake we felt....
    before the hotel began to melt. Bye bye.

    [we were in a hotel in japan, near tokyo, when we felt an earthquake, but there was no damage near us. thank goodness. it is like war; until it comes home to roost, it is easy to ignore.]
