For earthly heart would not suffice

Natural Disaster challenge: Drought


They had been at sea almost four months: storm-lost early, they drift now at the mercy of deadly, dry winds in a shoreless sea.

All the world is blue and white: blue seas, blue skies, white, white sun burning silver clouds that give no shade. Truth is pitiless, thinks Amandil.

They have been abandoned – utterly.

His crew is dying – he feels it everyday. Thirst! Hunger hurts less. This salt-sea plain, water to the eye only, horrifies.

Faith had watered will strong enough to die for his people; today, his thirst surrenders:

Send the storm, Herunúmen – let us drink, and drown!


Title: stolen from a line of Pearl.
