  7. Whew. Def feel the heat in this one. Being without water is brutal ad you wont survive long. The heat though can be so oppressive without relief.

  12. I too have read about the heat wave that is sweeping India and hope it soon gets better. Your words powerfully express the harshness of extreme weather.

  13. Small mirror of a huge picture; nice use of the form. One does not need to stagger on & on with stanzas/lines, as I tend to do, to strike a chord, to rock a prompt, to share a message; nice job, & may the cool be with you.

  14. What a terrible thing you are going through in India--I'm in the West of the USA where we are also dealing with drought. It reminds us, really, how little control we have, though we need to assume responsibility for our role in the climate situation. I pray things get better for all of us.

  15. Brief poem but so full of heat - I can just sweat reading it. Excellent use of the palindromic form with reversal of words and lines. Excellent work! Hayes Spencer is Kanzensakura
