I write what I feel…


African Rain


I wished in vain

For little drops of rain

While the ground lay dry

And cracked beneath my feet


The hot wind teased

The brown grass seeds

And blew them helter-skelter

Across the dust-dry earth


A muted rumbling

A flash of lightning

Far away in the vastness

Of the mountainous distance


Relief was looming

The rain was coming

Dark clouds appeared, rain escaping

In a deluge straight from heaven
