Watering Hole

We all need a watering hole

bug or beast,

fish or fowl,

mammal or mayfly,

we all need it



our eyes can catch sight of it

in the deserty distance

and sometimes 

it’s close,

so close

but we’re on the wrong side

of the water splattered glass

looking out


so useless

we can only see it

only cry,

cry for help.

Will anyone help?

Yes or no?

We can only hope,

hope that the ayes will have it,

otherwise the eyes are all there are

and only wet enough for the lucky little ones.
