The Dark Clouds

All she ever asked for was–

a morsel of good meal

with her family

in a house that

protected them

from the blistering sun,

from the drenching rain and

from the chilling cold.

***

Her wish never came true

but she hoped it would,

until one day–

the dark clouds

washed out her crops,

washed out her hut,

washed out her hopes,

washed out her life.

***

She now wails, but in vain!

For it is not loud enough

to wake the gods up in heaven

above those dark clouds

that brought the rain!
