Water wise

My vacant eyes stare about
From a parched throat
My cry;
“Rain, rain, go away…”
All awhile my heart wonders;
“Where have all the tears gone?”
The lakes are no more
The oceans all but receded
And I am high and dry
In the air hangs
A dank mist
Its tendrils
Reach out to those
Who thirst
And I sit first in row
Hiding to get out of sight
The problem is
I’ve closed my eyes
And my mind cannot see
That all around me is water
For I am my own island
Marooned by fear…
