Middle School tanka

Dimly lit pictures
Unknown companions search
for lost images
Silent faces unspeaking
ink and clothing
faded white.
    -Kotta Katsuda

The screaming people
As the ground starts to shiver
From our ice cold fear
The ocean begins to weep
The tsunami is coming.
    -Sho Hatakeyama

Waka left by men
The messengers of the day
Of the Tsunami
Of the destructive earthquake
Left for next generations
    -Shaw Hagiwara
