It Is Terrible

The shift of weather

rainy, wet, cold

to dry, desert like warmth

sweeps through the town.



The day before rains were heavy.

Now the sun shines bright.

Oh! the vagaries of nature

keep one in apprehension



What could be next?

Earthquakes in Indonesia,

floods in Kerala,

hurricane in Florida


Hundreds die.

Thousands lose their shelter.

Many children orphaned.

Aged left helpless.


It is saddening.

Heart wrenching.

Whom to blame?

Who should be accused?
