For Kathmandu

 

 

To those of you living in a fault zone

those perched precariously on hillsides

or laboring to stay alive

in a city surrounded by gloriously dangerous mountains

having seen loved ones die

livelihoods destroyed

ancient shrines erased—

Know we send our love

aware we, too, are living on the edge

of all we perceive

being swept away.

 

        —John Roche
