Relief

Written by: Diana Rosser

Gathering winds cumulate moisture seeds rolling athwart tempestuous seas, that float in gossamer clouds on cooling breeze, easing savage summer swelter parching stark expectant fields. Sweeping inward monsoon black, lightning Flash! crack! Thunder, splat! Heavy drops, dance, dart, dash. Joyful hands clap! Young feet, jump, splish, splash; relief floods. Torrents rain down warm on earth’s upturned face, rivulets run wild along nakedness, baptising thirsty toiled fields made ready for planting.
