Jostling around these busy streets,
Once there lay a familiar path
Unending... seems the lane today
Recalling the residents, that once stayed.
Now,fractured concrete is left to stare
Every prayer builds hope in the air
Yearning to forgive,how the Quake has fared!

You are too good at precise and touching presentations. This poem is so artistically and intellectually presented. Well done. A very different take on the topic. Keep it up.
