Pondering the future

Soft rain is sifting down outside,

breaking the great heat,

wetting the parched earth,

while over in Mozambique

there has been so much rain that they

are enduring major floods.

The air has cooled,

the ground is cracking

and the world goes on despite resent calamities,

which cloud our enjoyment

of this little reprieve from

the waves of heat that

have vexed the natural world

and pushed us to the limit too,

my joy comes with a shudder,

as I ponder our future.
