3-11-2011 (Friday Fiction)

This week's Friday Fiction is hosted by the talented writer, Karlene Jacobsen over @ her blog : Dancin in the rain. Click here to read and share more great fiction. 

Author's Ramblings: In the wake of the recent earthquake/tsunami that has affected Japan and so many others, I'm skipping my Friday Fiction story for a short poem. Please keep these people in prayer. 

Taken by talented photographer Clark Little. I've chosen this snapshot because it stirs a thread of hope for me.

3-11-2011
Water, everywhere
Dark, deep, strange
Mystery
Tragedy
I don’t know what to do

Disaster, everywhere
Shock, horror, terror
Panic
Static
I don’t know what to do

Mud, everywhere
Wet, cold, thick
Sticky
Heavy
I don’t know what to do

Fire, somewhere
Hot, high, distant
Many
Many
I don’t know what to do

Debris, everywhere
Sharp, soft, hard
Cold
Old
I don’t know what to do

Prayer for everywhere
Needed, wanted, asked
Craved,
Saved
This I can do

Hope for everywhere
Peace, warmth, safety
Protected
Guarded
This God will do.

In the palm of His hand,
Beneath the shadow seen
His strength reaches out
His hope reaches out
His love envelopes
The miles unknown

My prayers,
Your prayers
Their prayers
He hears them from every corner of the world
He is listening
And He is there,
Instantly
 (c)Sara H.
