"Attempts At Containment..."

....each and every day...
...and each and every night...24/7.
Recovery efforts
and attempts to control the unimaginable
are becoming
increasingly exhausting and seemingly endless.
With unearthly power,
Mother Nature
released herself from her Tectonic containment...
spewing about
natural, human, and nuclear
devastation and destruction...everywhere:
lives taken...hearts broken...families shredded...
a nation in crisis...spirits in distress.
A new normal
will now haunt the future of Japan's people
for years to come.
The grief of her people is unable to be contained.
like a slim crack of bright sunlight piercing through
dark and ominous clouds
Hope has appeared unchained, unfettered.
She rises and stands boldly
stretching her comforting wings over the hearts and souls
of an entire nation of people....
Her strength and will bolstered daily
the millions of prayers and
generous acts of goodwill being offered worldwide.
Be a part of it.
Pray for Japan...March 2011.

yes Japan is uppermost in our heart. I enjoyed your 'containment' image and I found a lotus tucked in there too.

I still can't wrap my head around the enormity of it all. My heart is ripped wide open for the people and animals of Japan.

This is a beautiful reminder. Thank you♥

This has been such a sad, sad story. I was on vacation when this happened and we all sat in our room and watching the news for hours. More than a few of us had tears in our eyes. This is a beautiful post.
