HN ( / Colombo / Sri Lanka)


Water surging into the house
our safe place
we never had doubts
it was a nightmare
we watched before our eyes
disbelief as the water did rise
into every crevice it did go
leaving devastation with ever flow
our eyes couldn't believe
we knew we couldn't leave
water gushing through the walls
it reminded me of Niagara Falls
The hurricane came and left its mark
but enlightment came after the dark
