Inspiration piece

Headlong into Oblivion

(reflections on the earthquake in Haiti, Hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in Indonesia)
By Kathy Doran

The deaf man didn’t hear Vesuvius roar

The blind boy ran but couldn’t find the door

Earthquakes, volcanoes and floods all plunder

Human beings, farmland and buildings, plowed under

Cracked and shaking ground or liquid rock scalds the earth

Sending  souls back to the source of their birth

Frozen in time, a lasting impression

Frozen by fear, an engraved expression

Where we come from we do not know

One thing is certain, back there we’ll go.
