Army Mom’s Safe Haven


For the Victims of the Tsunami
For the Victims of the Tsunami. One of the news channels yesterday showed a little boy who had lost everything, throwing rocks and debris at the ocean – I could not find that photograph today so attached this other one instead

Ah, Little Boy
so all alone,
no more parents,
no more home…

lost at the edge
of the roiling sea
throwing stones
as mad as can be

Oh, little Boy
in your anger and pain
you punish the ocean
again and again

You hate the sea
that you used to adore;
It won’t be the same –
no, not any more.
