    Loved ones/mothers/fathers/sisters/brothers/children//
    They keep searching...

    Desperate to find the
    living amongst the crumbled ruins
    of concrete slabs and twisted steel
    dashed hopes to locate
    life in the midst of
    death

    These words are so contrived...

    but they keep hoping...

    Loved ones/mothers/fathers/sisters/brothers/children//
    wanting so much to find the
    people that have disappeared
    from their lives
    into thin air ~

    For it was only yesterday
    or the day before
    when laughter
    hugged them
    and simple smiles
    kept them closely together

    ... Yet now
    standing in the center of catastrophe
    grief rubs their backs
    and ash overcomes them
    painting their living faces with
    pale somber frowns

    These words are induced ...

    and still they keep looking
    Loved ones/mothers/fathers/sisters/brothers/children//
    with stale stares gaping over the
    muzzle-loaded mortar
    that holds flesh-like tabernacles in
    absolute silence

    Beyond the perview of our understanding
    these lost loved ones stand in spirit;
    lifted into the shear beauty of a light
    blue sky~
    Exhalted;
    looking back at us
    in their robes of white linen
    with ineffable expressions
    singing a new song
    with a chorus of angels
    harmonizing
    in solidarity ...
    they are singing graciously
    inviting those of us that
    were left behind
    to
    look for them
    beyond our loss
