Drought

 

It hasn’t rained on the Coast for months and the land is scorched.

The grass is withered. The shrubs are losing their colour.

 

But the trees are green. Some are even in flower with beautiful pink flowers

that remind me of Edinburgh’s Meadows in May.

 

And that’s because “a tree planted by the water sends out its roots by the stream.

It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.

It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

(Based on Jeremiah 17:8).
