An Unkept Promise

by kim blades, writer

Powerful, towering clouds,

gun-metal grey and threatening

the quiet, cowering land below.Through small slits in plate-metal armour

murky sun rays slide out

and bleed in slanting runnels,

like the rain that is intimated –

even released,

but disappears before reaching the despairing

parched land below.
