Middle School tanka

The Earth starts to tremble,
Students’ eyes are wide -fear filled
Will it ever stop?
But above Earth’s mighty roar,.
The victims’ faint cries are heard.
    -Alexandria Tso

Earthquake, tsunami
Houses destroyed and full of mud
Everything is gone
Piles and piles of cars
Waiting, just waiting.
    -Georgia LaMacchia

What all their eyes see
are the stories and the lost.
But do they really know
how much the shattered glass cuts,
how much the water can take?
    -Amanda LaBarge
