Tsunami Haiku and Tanka by Barbara Robidoux

at fukushima
nuclear fire explode
namo myo ho ren ge kyo

looking for his wife
young man rides a bicycle
through tsunami ruins
finds a golden buddha
buried in debris

  1. I’ve written a series of haiku about the Japan disasters called KĊboku, here’s one from there:

    magnolia moon
    fukushima needs petals
    for everyone’s heart

    Alan Summers

  2. The Undersea Alderaan

    The great Black Dragon.
    Does it know your home address? Even the secret places.

    Written on the wind
    Listen very closely, now,
    last cries of many

    Kevin Sullivan
