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.

    I have read that but you need to focus on images not on reciting lines. Use methphore and give a touch of your own way of looking at things . You have a good command of grammar .Good luck

    SKAM, After further analysis it turned out to be an aurora borealis. Jim Horn

    When it gets very hot, I love driving out on dipping roads and chase those mirages...

    S.zaynub, this is an excellent read. In the summer months, when the roads are hot. and you're out in open spaces you can see the mirages miles ahead but can never really catch up. Technically, nice flow, easy to read great subject and rhyming. Well done A7
