The End Is Near – Flash Fiction

Thirsting for water
Not a cloud anywhere seen
Everything is dead
Trees are screaming out
Our leaves are all on the ground
Somehow please save us
Once what was luscious
Voluminous green pastures
Has now turned to dust
Spring arrived with hope
Not a flower to be seen
Oceans are depleting
Lakes and rivers are hollow
Ponds now memories
Scorching sun daily
Humans are seeking shelter
Underneath the ground
Not one animal
Can endure these elements
Soon there will be none
Annihilation time
Sorrowfully will soon show up
Such a travesty
Depression darkness
Gasping for relief to come
