A Day in the Rainy Season

Morning explodes with a golden sunrise,
that burns from the blue heavens.

Humidity inevitably fills the air.

Slowly, thickening cotton formations cover the sky.

Before dusk, the white clouds gradually turn grey, and eventually black.

Electrifying streaks flash across the sky.

 The moisture in the eerie atmosphere collides,
creating a rumble that shakes the earth.

Finally all control is lost,
as water hits the ground like a solid.

When the rain diminishes,
an orange sunset covers half the sky.

Heeding toward the darkness moving to other lands,
the reflection of a colorful, luminous arch ends
a day in the rainy season.

    1. Those storms hit here just about every day from May through Sept. That was my first impression, and my “twenty years later” impression will go just tiny bit more in depth. Thanks for reading, Pete.
