V for vacant


Parched earth cries for help
empty skies, empty tears-
miserly monsoon.
**************************
pause awhile, reflect
rest weary mind, aching limbs,
vacant bench beckons

    1. Thanks SG, a drought is terrifying as is a flood, basically any extremity is.

  7. Both reflect a melancholy somewhere.Nice take, Reshma. It is praiseworthy that you could travel this much and so no intricacy in reaching the dead end. I couldn't continue because I cannot sit with my system as I wish.So I had to delete this item from my wish list.
