Hiroshima Nagasaki and Fukushima Daiichi Poem Points To Remember

Today is December 7th, 2011

On this day I remember

My first thought on Pearl Harbor Day turns to the anniversary of my father's passing. I light a candle in remembrance and say a prayer. I hope his soul survives on in a better place.

Each day carries its own energy and potential. What can be accomplished for the greatest good on earth, can be turned into an instrument of death. It is so with nuclear energy. The mystics say that the greatest potential must be balanced by the greatest weight. Thus, the radioactive elements on the periodic chart, which have the potential for destruction, explosion, implosion and annihilation balance the scale against the heavenly forces of light, elation, joy, and reverie that can be found when inhaling oxygen and helium found higher up on the chart.

Death Versus Life

Mankind who put their faith into science and their ability to control the world decided to utilize the power of the atomic bomb, and after WWII, to energize the world, to light up the globe with nuclear power. We benefit from that energy to power our light bulbs, computers, and a myriad of instruments in our homes, towns and cities. However, research scientists and decision-making officials did not take into enough consideration man's frailties, the minutest error in judgement or calculations and their repercussions.

Besides the devil's advocates of greed, lust, jealousy, and revenge, we can lose sight of the protective and cautious elements of safety and caring for others. All of the what if's when we do not have all the facts, when we brush away any doubts, when we blow to the wind caution.

The Legacy of Japan

And, so the legacy today of the place on the map called Japan contains a history of substantial potential and complete failure. The island people have shown many faces and sides of their beings. They overcame the bombings, resurrected nuclear power on a fragile island surrounded by fault lines, and how could they not see into the future, which has become our present state?

The earthquakes, tsunamis and collapse of the nuclear cores at Fukushima Daiichi tell the tale. How will the planet survive and what decisions will leaders of all countries make to move forward? I can only hope technology will find a way to clean up the mess and we can sort out a better future. So you see that Japan has a special place in the history of our world. Great and powerful potential to bring compassion, understanding, scientific achievement and a gathering of peoples together; or on the other side the worst kind of division, dictatorship, demeaning and destruction of humans. We have seen from the tsunami the grief, the orderly fashion in which they have received this tragedy and news. In this shockwave, how will we as by-standers take this opportunity to help them recover and make proper decisions?

Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Fukushima, Daiichi Poem Points

Each point on the globe

contains an essence

a soul

Each point on the globe

latitude and longitude

crosshairs

Each point on the globe

a cultural melting pot

where people

collide

Each point on the globe

tells a historical

biography

Each point on the globe

a shared mission

tutorial

Each point on the globe

a how to repair the earth

lesson

Each point on the globe

can be a shining

light

Each point on the globe

a reflection of

what is

right

Each point on the globe

where lightening

doesn't strike

twice

Each point on the globe

three strikes and

you are

out

* * *

Each event points us

in a direction

cloudy or sunny

we choose

We can point to a moment

August 6, 1945

a monument to total

obliteration

Making a point they tried

to rebuild the nuclear

energy source for

good

On the point of human error

that believes he can

control such

power

The tip of the finger points

to the dark black cloud

of death and we

question

Number two point on the map

on August 9, 1945

Nagasaki a plutonium implosion

blew up

* * *

Japan, Japan, Japan

Madame Butterfly

Cried that day

more black rain

toxic radiation

poison

* * *

We point to a spot

on the map where

22,000 tons of TNT

obliterated human

kind

Don't look at that point

in the sky that burns

your eyes

out

Counting the aftermath of one point

stalks produced 33 percent more seeds

90 percent [GMO]

sterile

What's the point

to go on

trying?

Cancer and birth defects point out

the error of our

ways

Making it a point

to never forget

they forgot

This generation stands on this point

island Fukushima

Daiichi

On tip-toe point

we dance around

the subject

worldwide

Point your finger in the damn

radiation leakage

to stop the

insanity

This point of contention

prevents us from

finding peaceful

solutions

So, simply meditate on the point

of light from one

flickering

candle


Did you know they plan to dump thousands of tons of contaminated radioactive waste water from Fukushima power plants into the ocean?

How will they clean up radiation contamination?

The Sunflower

The sunflower like the sun

filled with thousands of seeds

not sterile but fertile

can meet Japan's needs


The sunflower's potential

her shape round and bright

acres and fields of them

absorb rather than put out light


The sunflower picks up

seizes the cesium waste

plant thousands of packettes

and do so post haste


Sunflowers at Chernobyl

they cleaned up the ponds

the power in a million flowers

let's wave our magic wands

Mark Ewbie wrote an article, which is no longer published, a little off his usual themes that address the issue of nuclear proliferation and who should make, own and use bombs. The discussion revolves around whether or not Iran should be able to make nuclear weapons.

On December 7 Pearl Harbor Day, I wrote these poems dedicated to my father and peace. Japan, the United States and all countries must learn how to safely use nuclear power and where to house it, for any mistakes lead to disaster, waste, nuclear waste, contaminated water and lives. Just some thoughts.
