waiting on the rain


waiting on the rain 



dark clouds gather 

swirl and spin overhead 

skies darken 

and a once gentle breeze 

grows restless 


a parched earth  

aches for the sweet taste 

of life 

we all stare up 

and wonder when tears 

will fall 


a thinning atmosphere 

let’s a burning sun 

terrorize the soil 

and there is little 

we can do 

but wait
