On that day the earth shook the ground

On that day the earth shook the ground,
One year later it is spring all around.
The aftermath that was hard to erase,
Not a sign today; is this really the same place?

Life itself can feel like such a crime,
To be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
If I stood here back then I wouldn’t be today;
And to be safe each day I can only pray.

On that day the earth shook the ground by 


Today marks the first anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Japan, and the weather is beautiful; a beauty somewhat ironic considering the events exactly one year ago. I remember looking at various before and after shots when the disaster occurred, as well as before and after shots after recovery was on its way – it’s amazing how much a place can change.

The earthquake in Japan is not the only example of a disaster of such a great impact. For example, Mt. Vesuvius , as pictured above, erupted and destroyed the city of Pompeii and it’s people; and now it is a lively tourist attraction.

    A wonderful tribute… There is a time and season for all things. It was not your time to be there, but it is for you to write and share.

  • Well said Judith, thank you for you thoughtful comment :) I really wish I could do more but things suddenly got busy, and free time has rarely seemed to come to me since.

  • Thank you very much Greta! What a lovely surprise; was a lovely start to the week – which has been rather insane. Sorry for the late reply; it has been incredibly busy and have been getting sick possibly due to the constantly changing whether – but also due to a lot of stress, but that shall change after next week! Cheers.
