Clouds Without Water

crying ‘peace, peace’
when there is no peace

seeking justice without mercy,
touting freedom without choice,
demanding change without forgiveness,
and claiming love without truth

clouds without water
race across the mortal landscape
in the slipstream of the profoundly wounded

the illusion of a righteous downpour
lacking all that sustains the heart and grows the soul

while in the shadows
death still lingers
for those who hunger and thirst
