Tragedy on a mountainside
Sharp as the clustered rocks
Thrown up in a great collision
Millennia ago
Days ago

The dust has time to settle
Erosion longer
Though death is an instant

The wreckage of families grief
Is exposed to the raw chill
Of alpine winds
Perhaps the snow's can numb the pain
Until the meltwater
Floods out the tears
