Heat Memories

Searing heat smacked in waves
Four months of pure torture
Lord Shiva shaking matted tresses
Releasing every manner of creepy crawly creature
Ground coming alive with scorpions, snakes, insects
Rain gods jeering, playing games of dice
Frequently shaking fists
With empty threats of lightning, thunder
Parched throats, hopeful eyes
Beseechingly scanning skies
For those elusive clouds
Bursting with swollen
Wombs of life giving manna
As multitude of deities
Get smothered by milk
And fruits in a last ditch
Effort for succor~
