    hi, this is poem written by my sweet daughter -ASHWATHI, after the Tsunami.


    THE FURY OF NATURE

    In the heat of the night,
    When the moon was full,
    And pure white;
    I heard him cry loudly,
    Into the silence of the night.

    A day when the world was shattered,
    Broken into fragments,
    Not by narrow-minded sectarians,
    But by the fury of Nature….

    The very Nature that had given us,
    Everything for a wholesome life,
    Nurtured us past generations,
    Like a caring mother,
    A synonym of love.

    But that disastrous day,
    She shattered those very lives,
    She had once made happy,
    Without a warning…
    I walked up to him,
    A young lad, whose face,
    Was buried in his palms,
    Now sobbing quietly to himself.

    I gently touched him,
    He looked up but said nothing,
    But stared at me intently,
    For a long time, scrutinizing,
    My peaceful pallor;

    At last he cried out,” How could you do it?”

    I will PM you my daughter's name, my tel no & mail-id, if you are interested, friends !

    Hi Sudha,
    Your daughter's poem was quite touching. Through her description about Nature she brings out its creative and also its devastating nature. Ask her to keep writing.
    Rgds,
    Malathi

    Dear Sudha,

    Very touching poem - Do encourage her to express her thoughts like this and I am sure she will emerge as a creative writer.
