deserted

Updated on November 12, 2015
Source



had rain drizzled, earthy smell would’ve filled,

with clouds split, only tears have filled.


clouds have, returned to oceans, to rest.

leaving ourselves, to blame for our fate.


hot hard crusts, diverted, clouds interest,

with no cool green patches, it deserted.


high and dry, poor people are left,

again, has begun the annual quest.


heat boils, on the forehead of their kids,

cool pools, are again a dream in countryside.


bountiful season could have been reserved,

had few more trees, preserved.


remembering wells swelled, once

emotions swell, eyes fill, thence.

      Swelled with emotions. Parched land fated for ominous times.Reacting to harsh reality.

      Living in the driest continent on Earth, I can really relate to this poem Hari. Where I live has had good recent rain for a change..but it isn't always this way. "Deserted" is a good title.
