Parched Land

Today’s poetry topic is about the dreaded environmental condition known as drought. It plagues many parts of the world, and leaves lands barren and cracked. I wrote a series of three haikus on it.

Parched Land

I

Our thirsty cracked earth
Imploring the blue heavens
For drops of rebirth

II

Abundant river
From clear to brown; at last dust
Parched land in despair

III

Global climate change
Flood today; drought tomorrow
Future uncertain
