Q---Quake



In the quiet of a dark night,they huddled together in a dark corner of what once was their home.The only hope they could latch on to was that of a quick detachment of their bodies from their souls. Trembling limbs tightly clasped in a vice like grip,they could hear the other's palpitating heart. Agitated by the tremors ,the ground caved in .Engulfed by the quaking earth,their lips quivered ,too weak to speak but in silent prayer..

  5. This gave a goosebumps ! Its such a scary experience - earthquakes. I have been subjected to many in Japan - some of them of very high magnitude - 7.5. Japan has earthquake resistant structures so there was no damage - but it was very very scary !

    1. Tried penning a few lines but they can be no where near the real emotions at that time though .

    1. Got kind of stuck with Q ,recent quake and photograph of a couple huddled together beneath a staircase, prompted me to pen a few lines.Looking at them was traumatic enough...
