Tsunami – Poem by Rona Campbell

“You must understand

waves must land somewhere.

Listen to what they say.

Think yourself lucky,

to be breached and

swept clean, and for

fire and ice to

grind you down, and

for temporal residents to

sway and explode.

They will fall and fossilise;

such is nature’s lazy malaise,

it is good to be sterilised;

cleansed of the need to breed.

I understand, infinite sand,

You do not appreciative

much beyond that

infinitive lick of light,

how earth writhes beneath you.

Where waves land

death regurgitates life.”
