Nature’s wish (Slice of Life)

This year the rains have been a little different. We had good rains in June and July. But, in August, it is was if the rains played musical chairs with us. It rained for a whole week, and then there was no rain for a week. For the last three weeks, we in Coastal Karnataka have not been having good rains. However we have been reading in the newspapers that many large dams in our state have almost completely filled up.
There is a large lake in our place. There are inlets in different places for the water from surrounding areas to flow into reservoir. By September the lake fills to the brim. This year, by the end of August, water had reached the brim but now the level has gone down. We just hope the rains come again. Wonder what nature’s wish is.

“It should be raining,
But rains have deserted us.
The heart fills with dread.
What is life without water?
Thinking leads to a nightmare.”

Nature's wish

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle.
We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating.
I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too.
Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I am doing something in my own way. Twice a week I go to a home for the mentally challenged . This has enriched my life.
There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.

Nature does what she will. Either too much or too little. I am sad for all in the wake of the hurricanes who are suffering loss at the hands of nature.

We must all learn to be careful with what Nature gives to us so that we do not waste it or use it badly. In Australia we know what happens when the rain doesn’t come. Now we wait for the fires and hope we can survive them.

The climate is changing all over the world. We are all having to adjust to the new reality which seems to involve much unpredictability. I think we are all a little out of kilter since we are used to weather patterns we have experienced in our lives up to know.
