Repost: Drought

A repost from last August – with the preparation of my novel for publication (almost there!) I haven’t had time to write for my blog. An even worse drought is affecting my area and much of the US this year, so I thought this poem was appropriate. Hope to be posting something new very soon! Thanks for your patience.

Waiting
for the rain
there is
a pain
of thirst
in the eyes
and sighs
of the beholders.

Looking
on the dryness
there is
a deafness
to cries
for a break
and stake
in the weather.

Sleeping
through the storm
there is
a swarm
of being
for the birds
and words
of an awakening.

Poem: Drought

Waiting
For the rain
There is
A pain
Of thirst
In the eyes
And sighs
Of the beholders.

Looking
On the dryness
There is
A deafness
To cries
For a break
And stake
In the weather.

Sleeping
Through the storm
There is
A swarm
Of being
For the birds
And words
Of an awakening.
