Unseasonal
by Shernaz Wadia

Did you hear the unseasonal rain
battering your rooftop
bouncing down the catastrophic
path our ecological footprints have made? 

And did you see it
cascading down diminishing trees  
in silvery tassels?
Did you dance to its wanton presence?

Or did your heart lament with the farmers
their futures being ruthlessly washed away?
The thunder bellowed a warning
to our species. Will you heed its voice?

We bound undismayed up the rungs
of exploitation and extradition
threatening the survival of every other species
Can we backtrack? At least correct our course

to help diffuse the volatile patterns
of unseasonal seasons?
Reshape the evolution of our civilisation
and save posterity from further damage?
