China Earthquake


i have felt the earth move
and known the surreal
lapse of time and space
when things weren't
as they should be

the horror that this earthquake
has enveloped you in
is still beyond my imagination

i can only offer thoughts
for those who are no more
that they are in harmony with
that which is

far harder
to ease the suffering
of those remaining

loved ones and order
as you know it
gone

the surreal moment
lingers too long

i'm sorry you find yourselves
living a catastrophe

for now
i can only offer
heartfelt words
from dayao to you
