Japan, redux

From a year ago:

Life-giving waters
Transformed in a flash, become
Japan’s wall of death

Lands lurch and seas surge
Turn nature into monster
Devastatingly

Terror, anger, grief
Emotions crash like the tides
Overwhelmingly

Thousands lost, millions
Ever changed, a giant tear
In the Earth’s fabric

The sakura weep
Nuclear tears, radiant
With history’s haunting

Japan like a bird
Without a branch to land on
Pray its wings stay strong
