“What’s that sound, Mommy?

drought-lake-bed-110908

What’s that noise, Mommy?
It’s called ‘rain’.
Sounds like crackling and spitting.
You mean like ‘fire’?
Yes.

So, when is rain?
When the sky swallows the water from lakes, streams and the ocean.
When is fire?
When there is no rain.
No forests, lakes or streams.
The ocean so dirty that the sky doesn’t want its moisture.
When no rain falls on the land, fire leaps and eats everything in its path.

How can you stop the fire?
With water from the rain.

So, we must save the water?

Yes. That would be good.

Can we start right now?

Sure.

OK. I won’t take a bath.
