The scent of water

Was just dust so barren so bare
No one bothered no one to care

He was a man lost in his own mind
No one remembered when he was kind

The heat of summer so intense nothing grows
Needs rain to fall to bring back the glow

He needs reassurance that someone cares
Not alone in the world, thinking everyone stares

Along comes autumn with its showers of rain
Guzzled up by the dust needing more again

A lonely hand reaches out he grasps with his might.  
Someone to talk with to help put things right

The winter snows filling thirst pockets to the top
What have we here a lonely snow drop

Found him a home, plenty of food in his tum
Big smiles on his face, feels like a new man

Whether nature or human when life seems at an end
With a little  help can start anew again.

**Have written this as alternative couplets,  nature and human both needing the       
scent of the water to begin again.**

    Very nice take on the theme, dear. I don't have a clue how to do this challenge. I like how you made it about both human and nature!
