monsoon season

goat head carpet rolls

across barren land

desert newcomers ignore sage advice

let them stay

“Such pretty flowers!”

oh the folly of knowing not one’s enemy

summer heat

scorching rays

green to brown

soft to thorn

tender thoughts turned deep regret

“such pretty flowers” now barbed seed heads

one - breeds one thousand

we told you so

stays behind sealed lips

for we remember the pull

dainty yellow faces smiling so innocently

the thirst for green

we were once you
