Desolation’s land

Desolation’s land

It rises

From deep within me

Molten fire

Lava’s ash

Through mind’s eye I see them crash

The colossal waves

 

Tsunami

Riding through the coast

In my mind

I see it

More than it was meant to be

Upon the first look

 

Bodies strewn

Particles of dust

The engines

Steel and rust

The only witness that stood

Desolation’s land

 

Reading of the poem:

Dido – Hurricanes (Official Lyric Video)

    • I hope not Derrick. It was derived from two nightmares. The last time I had such vivid nightmares something did happen. I remember dreaming of the earthquake which hit Nepal on 25 April 2015. I thought it was China in my recurring dream which started early April 2015.
