Shenzhen  Stuff

A blanket of glistening white above

Overshadowed in a sudden darkness

With pounding hearts

Trapped in consternation

Endeavouring to mutter a prayer

Anticipating a slice of hope

Baffled by a cynical deed

The zipping of luminous lightning

The rumbling of ruthless thunder

The lashing of crying rain

No sign of response

No throb of pain

No word of mercy

That was profound, Pages. Life is fleeting indeed. We never know if this moment is our last.

Hi, Coffee Break
Thanks a lot for browsing through this contemporary poem.
I was deeply saddened by what happened on the day of the Philippine tour bus hijacking incident about a month ago. The lives of eight Hong Kong people perished in the incredibly formidable tragedy. To me, a human life appears to be as brittle as a piece of paper at all times. Furthermore, we do not foreshadow what will happen in our future life. It is as fickle as weather in every moment. The incident has never gone out of my mind since I watched the whole story on television in the evening of Aug. 23, 2010. To express my personal feeling of sorrow for the unfortunate, I put pen to paper describing such a scene to remind me of cherishing our valuable time with the loved ones.
I am terribly sorry for confounding your thought with another idea.
