Stumbling through the crisp wind, cringed,
Winter afar and grasses swaying, Wild tufts verdant, their deep roots hinged,
The fields now violently fraying

The rebellious revolt of wind
Puffs of white now grey, The petrichor I cannot rescind
There will be no whey

This Summer.

The burst louder than the screams
The monsoon more pervasive than it seems

Floods of water
Floods of fear
Floods of blood
Floods so dear

Respite from dry decay
Stomachs envisioned empty
It took my house away
Will my crops be aplenty?
