I know one friend in Japan.  I know not where she is.  Her name is Mikiko Unemoto.


Japan’s rumbling hearts

Are crying out to the world

Let’s be there for them


Lest we all forget

Mother Nature’s awesome wrath

Remember Japan


My friend Mikiko,

Tonight I wonder of you

Praying you are safe.

Off solemn stretches of golden sand

Starry flowers of our time

Leave the world by Nature’s crime


The hours of this day will stand

A chaotic flash of blue and green

Within, our pain can be so mean


Forever etched in poignant scene

Homes and hearts, they both burned

And still I fear we’ll never learn


For all of us there’s no return

We look for faith heavenward

In hope they’ll be a just reward
