*alaigalin Attam (Tamil)

in seconds
generations disappeared
beneath time humanity lies hidden
work of the mighty seductress from the sea,
reasons inexplicably intricate
nature’s wonder it shall ever be
entombed only in her memory

Tsunami, I adore you
for the strength that swiftly sweeps all
but
Tsunami, I hate you
for the murder committed.

But, who can prison you
for that everything you have done?

Tsunami, the treacherous seductress.

The dance that kills. An excellent poem.
