Remembering Haiti - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Imagine waking up from sleep
and be imprisoned by the heap
of rubbles and other falling debris!

Imagine waking up from sleep
and seeing your own home
swallowed by the open mouth of earth!

Imagine waking up from sleep
and knowing that your loved ones
cannot wake up from death!

Haiti, we lament with you!
We share your tears
as you try to rub your eyes
from the deep sleep of
loss, pain and sorrow!
