World Tsunami Awareness Day
Countries and continents
Are hit by devasting waves
With deadly consequences
Flooding, storms and tsunamis
Are increasing in coastal areas.
Some countries are more hit than others
One being Japan
Early warning, public awareness
And rebuilding to reduce future impacts
Are keywords here
A beautiful Japanese story
Or the burning of the rice sheaves
In 1854 a farmer saw the tide receding
After an earthquake
He knew it was a precursor
Of a looming tsunami.
To warn the villagers,
He set fire to his harvest
So they could fled to higher grounds
In doing so, he saved the villagers.
One man can make a difference indeed!
