For Indonesia

Once again, earth rumbled at the core
After a tsunami came and ravaged the shore
For those living there
Let us whisper a prayer
That they don't face nature’s fury anymore!

Indian Express 20/07/07: Pangandaran July 19:A strong earthquake caused tall buildings to sway in the Indonesian capital today, sending panicked residents fleeing to the streets just days after a deadly tsunami struck the main island of Java in which 550 people have been reported killed so far. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties from the new quake. Read about it here

    A furious nature takes its toll
    Without mercy on one and all.
    With a prayer in our heart
    Let's wish the survivors a new start.
    Only God knows Tsunami's next port of call.

  2. I am so glad to see you back Padmaja :)
