1872


parched dry those stones fit -
wilted desire spells drought
curled leaves sighing crunch

Furthermore, Susan informs us: "Technically, climate is a set of weather statistics gathered over many years, a summary of tendencies in a region condensed from many spheres: atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere."

That drought image works in more ways than one. Wilted crunch--my goodness! Fine poem.

I can so feel that Gillena! California is still having a drought and I know what it's like. All the water dries up and the land thirsts for rain. Nice photo too! Hugs!

Sadly there will be a lot more crunching in the future if we keeping messing withe the climate though our neglect. How great it was to read these words.

Much "drought" is man made - think AZ and all those homes built where there is little (or no) water - it needs to be pumped in from lakes and such - and then we wonder "what is the problem". Truly crazy.

Gillena Cox said...

Thanks Amit

Gillena Cox said...

Truly Margaret, many of the our environmental problems lie in bad planning and management of resources
