Watering Hole by Lynn White ‏


l need a watering hole
‏bug or beast,
‏fish or fowl,
‏mammal or mayfly,
‏we all need it
‏our eyes can catch sight of it
‏in the deserty distance
‏and sometimes
‏it’s close,
‏so close
‏but we’re on the wrong side
‏of the water splattered glass
‏looking out
‏so useless
‏we can only see it
‏only cry,
‏cry for help.
‏Will anyone help?
‏Yes or no?
‏We can only hope,
‏hope that the ayes will have it,
‏otherwise the eyes are all there are
