Lost Smiles

In memory of the millions of people rendered homeless in the recent floods in Bihar.

Lost Smiles

In the darkness of the day,
a deluge unwanted arose.
from the waters untamed..
..which were once a blessing.

To territories once abandoned places one thought safe
making its presence felt ..
in lives it never dwelt.

One lost those crops
Some lost a beloved
Some their kins...
but all their smiles.

Haunting memories...
it leaves each day.
stories to be told
for centuries later.

How am i to...
laugh again.
how am i to get back
to the future
without a scar
of the recent past.

How am I to smile again?

Thanks for those kind words Tanu.
Yes indeed it is a sad situation out there. People are at it. I am hoping that things will improve soon.

God Bless.

Loved the picture and the words here Kshitiz...

but I don't agree to being emotional and sad about what has happened ( Though I cannot handle it myself either )

Hmm .. agree Om.
Sad hone se kuch nahi hoga.
