Friday Flash 55 - A Whole Lot of Shaking Going On - April 8, 2011

Japan has faced another quake,
With so much yet to do,
It seems so overwhelming,
With all that they've been through.

In Mexico, a quake was felt,
I felt a pang of fear,
With all this seismic turmoil,
Will San Francisco have one here?

In 1989, we had a 6.9 earthquake which was pretty scary!

I am participating in Friday Flash 55 -  the meme of that brilliant Mr Know It All -
check it out and write your own contribution in fifty-five words!


  1. We on the west coast are all left wondering "Will it happen here?"

  2. The earth shifts ever so once in a while, stretching her taut limbs never realising she is leaving her children high and dry.

  3. Yes alot of rocking and rolling in our world.
    SF sits on sludge - used to love earthquakes as a kid.

    I laughed at your comment about STDs and wondered what do people do? Call their SO "Hi honey - the funniest thing I have ..."

  4. Holy Cow! 6.9. I can't imagine. I about 1986 or so I felt aftershocks of a like, 3, and that felt pretty major.

    So nice of you to keep thinking of others, Carmen!!


  5. ugh...our world i think may be sending us a very clear message...

  6. Earthquakes are scary stuff. I remember your 1989 quake. We had one here in Detroit around that time too. most of us never knew we lived above a fault line until then. Ours was only large enough to feel and let us know it was there.

  7. Carmen Electra...
    Another Earth Rattling contribution.
    You Rock (strictly in a literary sense)
    Loved your 55
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  8. so hard to ask mother Earth to be still, hope and pray though that when it shakes it will happen in an unpopulated place and everyone be safe. thanks for your thoughts, Carmen.

  9. i remember that one and the one that hit at 7:42 am i was walking to school. where were you are 7 forty two was what it said on the cover of our yearbook.

    i now live in kansas safe from earthquakes, now i just watch for tornadoes.

  10. Anonymous10:48 PM

    Oh the joys of living in the ring of fire. I haven't been though a really big one... not yet.

  11. Altogether scary, hearing all these stories. Weather seems to be more and more extreme these days.

  12. Gosh,that must have been very scary!

  13. One of he most amazing sights I've ever seen was the great migration on the Serengeti, of thousands of wildebeest and zebras.
