Clouds of hope

A flock of sheep

Floats high in the sky

Sun for a moment

Stops, blasting fireballs

Baked earth sighs, with great relief

At fleeting respite, from the heat

A timid breeze, sensing it’s chance

Kisses the leaves, makes them dance

Evening arrives, a bit too early

To catch a glimpse

Of the budding romance

Wish the rains too, join the fun

Falling drops, tickle the earth

Hope it rains tonight

Then again, it might not

World might change somehow

Might really not

People might reflect on their ways

Or again, not at all

But there’s always some hope

Floating in the sky
