Living Again

Gonu came into our live
Shattered so many lives
The rain that we so much awaited
Flowed into us immensely
From mountains, strong river flowed
Digging its road
Snatching what ever is on its way
Wrecking away our homes
Leaving us out of shelter
To begin our lives out of scratch
Yet it can not wreck us apart
We are united for our country
Still most we are united for each other
Gonu, know that we are in acceptance
Of all God's ways
Gripping on nothing else but faith
As you came and gone
Know that you have not snatched our lives
We stand here Living again

You are a shining example Nasra of the strength and courage found in the human soul especially after such a tragedy as your words and photos depict. Stay well.

Dear Nasra--I am so very sorry this storm had to happen!! Please know, that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Also, thankyou so much for the visit, and words of encouragement.

Even, in your suffering; you think and pray for others--you are an AMAZING woman, and we thank God for your presence on this earth!!

As nature builds life; so too, can it destroy life--nature is the balancer, and all we can do, is stand united in love for each other, around the world!!

I hope you have not suffered personal losses, or losses of family and friends. It would be too much for mother-nature to ask of anyone...

ONE Love,

I'll tell you one thing -- I'll stop complaining about our rain! This is horrible.

I had heard of this storm and thought of you; hoping that it didn't hurt. But much rain on the sand has to wash away what is in the way!
Your expression of Gonu's devastation is what poetry is for, to me. Expressive words.
I hope that you are safe and back into your home.

I guess with the weather from here on out it's a matter of accepting a combination of the will of God and the will of humans...
