 A Monsoon Kind of Day
 
Furiously the heat lingers
as the desert sun grasps
holding the drought,
plant growth ordained
to your part of the world

Desert spirits cry to be dampened
yearning for a moments relief,
as the riverbeds of one’s soul
rough from the carving heat,
lie still in their death

Over the rise the storm is coming,
wailing winds of magnitude strength
levels sparse renewed struggling growth,
as fury slams against the tall cactus
whipping the foreseen seasonal path as the…

raging winds of the monsoon come again
