In 2004, natural and man-made disasters raged in many places on earth.
The people, who suffered them, you must still be hard in chill.
On the other side of the earth, the sun is shining now like this haiku by Loli Karas(8) in Melbourne;
and the sun will return to brighten your day like this again. Please warm up yourself by this image.
This haiku is taken from CHILDREN'S HAIKU GARDEN.
