The Only Sri Lankan Community Newspaper in New Zealand

The flood | Surani Mahagodage Napier

Must read

It was night,
Beating the sound of heartache and fear
Is it coming!
The rough sea, the raging whirlwind, as nature calls it, the beginning of a great storm.
We all gathered  and waited.
Closed the doors and waited.
Drops of sweat flowed from each other.
It came!!
Without any trace
It took them all in the blink of an eye.
I have never seen
anyone collapsing like that.
I listened and waited for that.
Oh Lord, and I became unconscious, before falling out of breath
It has arrived!!!
The Flood!

By Surani Mahagodage – Napier
