Tsunami 1 year on - Tanka




Year since Tsunami
Twenty thousand people died
Japan coming back
Like a phoenix from ashes
Japanese culture wins through


This is a Tanka poem following the 5-7-5-7-7 pattern.

The BBC website produced a set of photographs of different sites in Japan immediately after the event and a year later. Some of them are truly remarkable. The link below should take you to the relevant site but you may have to copy and paste.

I find the culture, work ethic and fastidiousness for detail truly inspirational.

God bless the families who have lost.
