As the sky shed tears of joy,
the ground hurriedly swallows these tear drops,
making tillage easier,
dormant seeds sprout out to show that they are still living,
dry ponds come alive,
As cat fish,mud fish and others dance with joy,
I`m not left out,for this is the period
of fishing and nature watch,
I love the cozy atmosphere and spreading umbrellas,
Walking under the moving canopy with my lover,
listening to natural orchestra led by the toad and crickets.
Humidity is high,but one thing is feared....Flood!,
Flood! Sweeping away shanties and littoral zones,
Making many homeless and hopeless,
Babies weep,mothers confused,fathers sad and
government sends relieve aids.
