On fire

Endless days of summer

Blazing sun heating up the earth

Little birds thirsting for drops of water

Green leaves and colorful flowers wilting

The summer in tropical regions is a tough trial

Man and beast praying for some relief

From the scorching sun, ablaze and burning

We wait for the monsoon rain to bring some relief

  1. Lovely poem, Sadje, and a stunning photograph, too. You are very good at writing pieces for prompts. I’ve never tried to use them on my blog. When I’m less weary from dealing with all the clutter while the junk room is decorated, I might give it a go. Where do you find prompts, if you don’t mind me asking? Thanks xx 🤗
