Quote:Isak Dinesen / Poem:Tsunami Signs

Isak Dinesen said, "All sorrows can be borne, if you put them into a story."

Tsunami Signs


On highway 101 a Tsunami sign
Comes out of the twists
And turns in the road.
Blue and white warnings
Of where to go in the event
Of an inundation.
It is a sign of woe
Like the yellow and black ones
Or duck and cover practices.
Tsunami signs lead to the hills
And like sheep we follow.
