The Day Earth Moved (by: William E. Marks)


It was the day after Christmas when Earth’s mighty shoulders shrugged together to transform time

Lifting a big wave no matter the name shifting weight hidden beneath Indian Ocean

Beaches Asian and African filled with children people relaxing and playing caressed by sun

Too late for too many came the warning cry as water’s heavy hands

      slammed

onto balmy white sands

What call of destiny placed that fateful day tens of thousands in harm’s way

Now tears of anguish flow around our Earthly sphere as loved ones cry for those held dear

Over 100,000 lost many untold taken by eternal sea to final destiny

We ponder and wonder the power of water its beauty, its glory its horror
