Indomitable winds, An abrupt tranquility, A soft rumble in the distance… Gentle pitter-patter, Grey, almost melancholic, skies. Parched greedy soil, The earthy scent of the first rains. Seemingly infinite showers. Emptying roads, Scurrying people, Everything looks a shade darker. Puddles on the road….. Wet happy urchins, Rapid metamorphosis from searing to refreshing. A budding hope for….. Uncontaminated novel beginnings.
