Haiku for Japan, III

Haiku for Japan
by Ysabel de la Rosa

Apocalypse came
in a single wave. The four
horsemen had no chance.


Corkscrew, sandal, vase
Last vestiges of loved ones
All that is left now


He lost all of them
Family wiped off the earth
Who understands this?


 Stand, start, must move soon
Now not the time to think, feel
Just stand, start, move--on


For love is stronger
than death, storm, quake, wave. Love
is--must be--stronger
