Drought

I witch for water.
Walking blindly,
I concentrate on my effort.
I am desperate,
you say.

     You watch for rain.
     Staring blindly,
     you believe it will come.
     You have faith,
     you say.

It is in your nature
to trust in what you need.

     Nature does not need you.

I witch for water.
…you watch for rain.
