A Tender shoot


A tender shoot has sprouted from a broken tree,
That was earlier ravished by the terrible tsunami,
Determinedly seeking the warm rays of sunlight,
In between the rubbles of peoples plight.

''Belgaum, Mac 2011''
(In memory of the terrible March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan)

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
