Water swallows the ground
as trees are blown from their roots.
Clouds tear through with the
wind’s hoarse, guttural roar.
Nature’s rage passes and
leaves houses scattered and drowned.
Quiet voices call out to neighbours
and cling to what remains.
Bur they go unheard from afar.
The world watches as mouths
move silently, struggling faces
with tears falling after the rain.
