XI "MOTHER AND CHILD"
Under the shattered structures amidst the excruciating flames.
Parent left child, child left parent,
husband left wife, wife left husband.
Nowhere to escape to.
Figures fleeing in all directions.
This was the Atomic Bomb.
In the midst of this, how eerie--
Mothers' loving arms shielding their babies from death, dying themselves.
There were oh! so many.
