Photo of a paddy field with lots of grass but no proper crops. While clouds appear to be streaming into the photo's frame
A field in south India. Ideally, should be brimming with crops. There’s been some rain, but not enough.

Clouds devoid of rain,
come sweeping into the fields—
farmers’ tears dried up.

Desolate country
where old metal goes to die
all the world’s a dump

Gone are the days

Photo of an old brick building in a small village in south India.

Shabby old buildings,
lifetime’s worth of memories—
forgotten in cracks.

Ever ready

Close up photo of the lush green leaves of a flowering plant.

Simply ingenious,
organic process of plants—
photo readiness.
