Water Search [Poem]

Harvests mixed
Long trek awaits women
To fetch, a pitcher of water
Till next monsoon arrive.

Flock of birds fly
Across dry river
Without sighting water drop
Sand beds beckon.

Eyes searching
For puddles, to descend
Quench thirst
Wait till dry season lasts.

Humans rarely migrate
Like nomads in past
Leaving their dwellings,
Water reaches their fields.

Water of distant mountains
Revive lone arid river
Amidst dry spells on catchment
Birds gather around.

K. Venugopal, Director
Ground Water and water audit Department, GoAP
