GODZILLA HAIKUS

Any day now—soon,
any day, the pundits say
we might wash away.

We dig for water,
bring David and the backhoe’s
hydraulic muscle:

big jaws and steel teeth—
hope and pray to break some loose
to water cattle.

California’s map
in flames, burning inside out
to greet El Niño.

 

One response to “GODZILLA HAIKUS

  1. Might be a good time to dig an extra pond or 2, to catch more rain to put back in the ground for the wells. “Sounds” so simple. 😉
