Tsunami Poem - There came a wave ...

  1. 1. There came a wave…There came a wave like a great hand,Grabbing everything on the land,Its fingers of foam, circling round,Uprooting trees, razing homes to the ground,It aimed its fist at everything in sight,Nothing could survive this dreadful might,People ran in and out in time with the tide,Nowhere to go and nowhere to hide,The hand was born in the belly of the ocean,Fed by plates creating the potion,It grew in fury, it grew in power,The anger to be unleashed within the hour,No one knew what was on the way,People were working, children at play,A shriek of surprise as somebody saw,A huge wall of white horses galloping ashore,The beasts dissolved under the heat,Sweeping hundreds of thousands off their feet,There was crashing and crunching and tearing apart,Seeping its way into everyone’s heart,Lives were lost, bodies found,Brutally killed by a hungry hound,When the punch came with the force of an army,The few that survived understood the meaning of ‘Tsunami’ Lily Usher Wales, UK Lily Usher Wales, UK
