Drought



A parched earth cries for
a drink from wooly white clouds.
An unanswered plea.


I feel silly complaining about dry, warm weather in winter. But as this photo shows, the Denver area is bone dry, which makes me worry about water restrictions and wildfires this summer if we don’t get some spring snow.

Wow, that's a scary thought to think about drought so early in the year. I hope some much needed rain comes your way. I loved the haiku and the photo.

Thank you so much for playing along.

Lovely,lovely photo and 'ku.
And yes, seems strange to be looking at dry in the midst of winter but correct to be wondering and anxious about what summer could bring. Here's hoping for much snow and soon!

I hope you get lots of rain soon

I have a friend who lives a bit north of Denver, at the top of a mountain and the fire danger is so stressful

things are so parched here, it is scary then the wind whips up and you can see all that dust.

If any snow threatens to come my way, I will try to send it scooting on over to you in Denver!

I live in CA and my friend half kiddingly said to me: "I feel like any day now, I'm going to open my front door and a tumbleweed is going to fly by".

What is happening today is so so reminiscent of the depression I am frightened.
