The Rain

They’ve taken away the rain.
Where is it?

Not in the diminishing ponds,
reflecting the blue sky.

Not in the clouds.
For they, too, have disappeared.

Where is the rain?
What have we done?

We’ve driven our vanity.
We’ve dressed ourselves in pride.
We’ve travelled to faraway lands,
where life was simple.

But we have learnt nothing.

So now they’ve taken away the rain.

And yet we are blinded
by the dazzling sun.
