  1. sad, John...read of a bomb scare in UK; didn't read of bombed houses

    morning chill
    awakened by the tremors
    of a shivering earth

    Indo-Pak earthquake (rather than Indo-Pak war) this morning leaving tremors in Delhi as well...no casualities....

  2. Just enough ambiguity whether the flute is literal or metaphorical.This avoids sentimentality and melodrama. Most effective.
