Tsunami Warning

Once more, Japan, we weep for you
earthquake on the Ring of Fire

Fold one thousand cranes, your prayer
ten years is too soon to suffer so much again

Fragile Earth is yelling out her pain
in many places, we have abused her much

Yet, it seems unjust that you shook so hard
so soon, so we send our one thousand cranes

Tsunami warning, we hope you will not drown
once more, we weep for you, we pray, we hope

  • In Japan folding one thousand cranes is a form of prayer

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.
