A Year Without Rain

Written by: Emily Schaffer

A dark sky, a low growl,
A flash of light, a haunted howl.

A chilling wind, an insidious fear,
From the dark falls heaven's cold tears.

A love sleeping dormant inside,
A heart that waited, a heart that cried.

A blood moon, hidden by the dark,
A fall of life, for a land so stark.

A year without rain, a land cursed,
A spell broken, a quenched thirst.
