You never left!

Here is the writing that won the love of “Jingle Poetry” and Yours…..:

In the sweet remembrance of those who lost their lives when a 9.0-magnitude earthquake hit the Pacific coastal areas of northeastern and eastern Japan on March 11, triggering enormous tsunami leaving 10,151 people dead and 17,053 others unaccounted for by 10:00 a.m. local time:

On the once peaceful shores of Okinawa,

When I came to find you,

I saw you in the wayward growth of the

flowers on the shore,

and in the warmth of your presence in the wind,

I felt you,

I heard your voices when the birds sang,

and I thought to myself,

you never did leave the shores

of Okinawa!

    • Thank you!
      Yes, it always pains us to write regarding such events, it still is incomplete as i remain at loss to find the words for the deep sorrow that fills our heart when we think of the departed.
