The sun and the clouds
played hide and seek as the rains

Someday, this will be over– only remembered like some half-felt and fading nightmare.
The sun is still rising from the east and setting from the west,
Birds are flying up and about without a care in the world,
Animals are roaming freely in their habitats,
The weather is having its usual cycles from one season to another,
The seas are going through their usual mood swings,
There is so much which hasn’t changed yet there is so much which is different,
Jobs have disappeared leaving many penniless,
There is a real struggle for food and water,
Businesses have been shut leaving people at home,
Cracks have appeared in family relationships leaving many broken families,
But hope is all what we have and can cling onto amidst this chaos.

Linda listened in silence as Sam expressed his utter disappointment. Disappointment was slowly turning into nervousness and fear. With consistent rains over the last couple of years, Linda and Sam had a bountiful harvesting season and lots to eat.
But this year, it hadn’t rained one bit. The situation had become so dire that if it didn’t rain soon enough, they would be forced to cut on their meals.
