Cool air from highlands
Envelops meadows below
Heavenly promise

Luxuriant green but
Small creatures magnanimous
in freedom's wild romps

Ruefully crying
Life lost untold destruction
Rare earthquake endured

Note: Recent earthquake on Mount Kinabalu caused 18 deaths

  1. Earthquakes are never good, they cause so much destruction

  2. quiet meadow
    the earth turns in its sleep
    then resettles

    Sad but well written homage to the lost ... Bastet

  3. Yes, I did hear about the earthquake it was in the newspaper today.Just how nature has different shades sometimes beautiful and life nurturing and sometimes........

  4. I know some people in Nepal near where the earthquake was there. It can be so devastating, and in te blink of an eye, everything changes.

  5. Earthquakes are a scary thing mother nature sends our way

  6. Earthquakes are a thing that rarely happen here, we may get a slight tremor.
    Excellent write Hank.

  7. A wonderful little story, with a sad tone, caught in three nice haiku. Earthquakes aren't pretty, but sometimes they bring a lot of new nature .... Even an earthquake, notwithstanding the sadness and harm it brings, can have a positive result on the beauty of Mother Nature.
