Thirst

Thirst

.

Dry heat dances above the tarmac

Eyes burning, searing, searching

Dense bush along the roadsides

With glimpses of clearings as we ride

Dirt replaces tar and rough replaces smooth

Saplings predominate

But some giants stand proud and tall

Greenery is mostly grey

Riverbeds lie yawning, boulder-strewn, bone dry

The rains are coming by and by…
