I'm trying to wrap my head around the current natural and atomic crises going on in Japan. I previously wrote a waka about Tsutomu Yamaguchi, a man who survived both atomic bombings. Given what this generation of Japanese are dealing with, I wrote this and the next poem. Tell me what you think.
The Children of TsutomuMy heart extends to
the Children of Tsutomu.
Now, when fierce waters
rise over borders, also
your Father's nightmares return.
