Evening Prayer
Edward Hujsak


I escaped
Once more,
A hurricane.
An earthquake.
A tornado,
A flooding
A lightning strike.
A snake bite,
A tsunami,
A grandmotherís wrath.

This contains ancient wisdom and eternal humour in poetry that speaks language with the brevity of a Haiku.

My Granny was five foot. Plus one inch. Her tsunami was terrible to behold! I adored her. A lovely poem.
