Tsunami waves are as strong and
unpredictable as a love affair.
These mysterious waves are fearful.
Upon hearing the Samoa Tsunami warning,
one priest, near the Pacific shore,
fled his congregation for higher ground.
Samoa is a long way from California
but anything can happen in the land where
natural disasters and drama are just daily life.
Earthquakes and falling in love can happen any moment.
Lovers hold hands and gaze at a harvest moon
which pulls with such strength,
the man and woman find themselves
rising and falling in a tidal wave of sheets.
