Tsunami

Over the last two days you’ve been watching a supersize fuschia-pink blossom of some sort erupting across several trees by the pathside. Dark furry pods like upright eggs balanced on the end of every slender branch. Cracked open allowing tightly squeezed flowers to force their way out. The trees now look like forty-foot-high candelabras. Magnolias?

A horrific huge tsunami in Honshu, Japan. Footage you’ll never forget, filmed from TV news helicopters tracking the surge of black debris-filled waters inland. It moved like a spreading stain across the fields, rolling up everything in its path. Other clips showed entire neighbourhoods of buildings being methodically dismantled then shredded. Cars and ships flung around like flotsam.
