Spotting a mirage
I thought mirages appeared
only in the desert heat
but today right from
my very own car seat
I spotted several, one after another
upon the paved smooth street!
Each mirage vanishing
upon our nearing
the midst of the clearing
Each pool of water shimmered
as a ray of hope glimmered
that we touch that shiny water
with my car tyre!
So we literally chased mirages
like in a wild goose chase.
A divine light trick of sun rays
Ah all the phenomena He created
lying there waiting
to be appreciated.
Gleaming glinting puddles in the midst of the road
all the way till we reached our abode.
So I watched the fine and wonderful optical illusion
Thanking God I don't live in deserts but rather near an ocean
The mirage , a tantalizing oasis for the thirsty bedouin
Water a precious amenity, wasting it is surely sin
(Mind you this isn't meant to be metaphorical
this is the actual
phenomenon of mirages
and they're a sight quite special.
