Drought #midnighthaiku

A long hot summer
Drink the lifeblood of the land
Draining it dry

Wide shores to greensward
Transforming desecration
Lake to rivulet

Greed ignoring need
Blind to Nature’s warning laughs
Empties the chalice

Exposing the depths
Drowned villages re-emerge
Giving up the ghost

  3. This is the first year in ten that our rivers have not been reduced to mud. We are lucky they haven’t overflowed the banks. We have not be flooded … but if the rain doesn’t stop, it’s not far off. How strange because summer is typically dry and I don’t think we’ve had two days in a row that weren’t rainy.

  4. We only had a few days of rain all year long. There was a talk about mandatory water rationing.
    Your set of haiku tells a good story, Sue!
