Reluctant rainfall
has in part re-greened the lawn.
Subtle changes herald fading summer.
The drought continues, moorland burns.



Today the sun sulks
behind cloud cover,
tired of our complaints.
A brief respite from the heat,
but of the drought?
No end in sight.

Rain Dance

Brown and scorched the grass,
relentless the heat and drought.
Time for a rain dance.

Raining Again

It’s raining again,
coming down hard,
it runs in the gutters
and puddles the yard.
People mutter and mumble,
beginning to doubt
(despite what they say)
that we’re suffering a drought.
