Late again!!

Gaunt gaze haunts the sky,
unploughed earth eyes unsown seeds;
delayed monsoon scathes.

   ************************************

 Early bird enjoys,
yet delay is good at times;
early worm laments.

  ************************************


Fading green cover,
 rising ocean, graying air
 too late to save earth.

This post is shared with Haikuheights and the prompt is LATE.

  1. I guess it's never too late ... there is always that tiny fragment of time that can be utilized :-)

    1. Thanks Ma'am, for us monsoon is fun to get drenched in and when it results in traffic jams and water-logging, we complain...But the farmer's livelihood and future depends on rain...Our futures depend too, but we seldom realise it..
