The Sun rays scour the soil and sweep the dust
Of cracks and crannies hiding from the light
And seeking shelter where heat insists
Are dying droplets left from time of joy:
The children play hopscotch in frozen caves,
Unconscious to the storm that growls ahead
And craves unwelcome furrows in the skin
Of earth and life and soul the spider weaves.
