Difficult Times

California Drought

Enough now of no rain,

Enough now of dry eyes of winter,

Day by day, green is fading,

Women returning with

Dry baskets of roses,

Like love during a war time,

A spring with no flowers,

A mother with milk-less breasts,

I take it all in,

I wait, I pray for;

The waterfall to fall again,

The fish in a pond

To swim again,

And,

The butterfly

To fly again,

I take it all in,

I wait, I pray

For the droplets

To return home.
