tsunami lapping
axis thrusting to and fro
aftershocks abound

I've been contemplating a quake poem. The earth, she ain't happy right now. I like the assonance of this piece.

I really like:

"tsunami lapping
axis thrusting"

The urgency is presented in a powerful way. The state of the Earth is devastating and sad.

I guess I was being too subtle, edit pending. Future apologies to Carole King.

I like how the piece ends with the sound of "abound". It gives resonance. Oh, I like the rest of the text too, not just that one word.

Not subtle at all.
Works well.

the subtlety is in the eye of the beholder...

^ how I agree to this.

you use 'thrusting' and 'abound' and call it subtle.
Noh!
I liked this.
