If only we all were passionate
about the world
as we are about our loved ones
the tsunami would have given
Mother Earth a miss...
If only our passion
for food, frills and fast life
was much lesser,
earth cracking earthquakes,
drowning floods would have taken a stroll elsewhere....
If only the care, love and passion
for all things fine and flamboyant
could have been substituted
by a maternal warmth for the globe
Japan would not have been floating in devastation...
Praying passionately for all those lost, hurt and dead in the tsunami..
