Japan – holding a space for caring across the miles

Japan – holding a space for caring across the miles

Life & Death Matters Post

A place of silence,
a place to hold the sorrow and tragedy of the earthquakes/tsunami in Japan,
a place to consider the many who suffer.

It is fitting to look for Haiku that might speak of the sorrow, and with someone’s words that are more eloquent than mine, send prayers and thoughts across the miles.


Earth and metal…
although my breathing ceases
time and tide go on.

Tsuchi kane ya
iki wa taete mo
tsukihi ari
