Flood Ravaged Queensland

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

broken waters
from river banks swollen
bore down upon humanity
…unleashing with fury
an urban tsunami

a mother’s heart wrenched
her love denied
for an infant snatched
stolen
by a force indiscriminate
…screams turn to whispers

see arms extended
on roof tops, hopeful
to bodies floating
life sucked upstream
…another tragedy
another helpless victim

the grief of Queensland
sunk in the psyche
of a nation, stoic
determindly dedicating
tear stained pages
to heroic tales
of
heartache
….and rebirth
