Haiku - Tsunami Anniversary


tsunami anniversary
i try to seek peace
in the calm waves

tsunami anniversary
painful waves churn
the heart

tsunami anniversary
waves of pain
strike the heart

tsunami anniversary
still restless, the the waves
in my heart

tsunami
water reigns the day
waves and tears

tsunami anniversary
spic and span the land again
but not the heart
