Sailing ahead, past Tsunami

a poem by Vinod Pallikandi

One sweeping stroke of Tsunami
Battered and bruised lives,
Rocked and scattered humanity.

But, thank you Tsunami
You gave us a chance to show our concern
Our brethren are not alone in a crisis.

Thank you Tsunami
You united us all to show that we care
To see children laugh, smile and go back to school.

And Thank You God
In a fragmented world, You perhaps created calamity
To keep us together!
