Nepal

The Day 27 prompt at the NaPoWriMo site is to write a hay(na)ku, another short form poem I’ve never heard of. But I do love short form poetry, especially in the final days of a 30-day poetry challenge. Here’s my timely poem, a hay(na)ku time seven.

Nepal

Pray
for Nepal
earth is quaking

Pray
for Nepal
dead and dying

Pray
for Nepal
temples all destroyed

Pray
for Nepal
may heaven rescue

Pray
for Nepal
send aid workers

Pray
for Nepal
hearts are broken

Pray
for Nepal
may God rebuild

  1. This is very moving. The Power Path school of shamanism invites us to join with them from six till six thirty p.m., in peacefully visualizing the ground stabilizing under the Himalayas. May the earth grow still once again.

    I also wrote about Nepal earlier today… It almost feels wrong to say I like these, and the repetitive first two lines hammer the message home. Fantastic and inspiring write!
