Poetry Project 2017: 07/09

Headlines:  Torrential rains cause widespread flooding and landslides in Oita and Fukuoka, at least 15 dead and more unaccounted for.

After the rains,
comes the sorrow.
How do we go on?
How do we repair?

After the floods,
comes the questions.
How did this happen?
How could we let it?

After the landslides,
comes the memories.
He was so brave.
She was so loved.

Nature doesn't care about
lives and plans.

Nature just destroys.

Humans rebuild.

We always rebuild.

We will rebuild.
