Peggy Fletcher | Sarnia, ON | LCP member for three years


Heatwave

Nature has sinned against us
burning the tender leaves
of immature plants.

There is no salvation for the flowers
their beauty curling
into extreme ugliness.

Rivers turn to dust
and inside my heart
I have  my own private drought.

that shrivels each joy
to a natural death, singes it
with a wreath of sorrow.
