With the skies refusing to rain down upon us over the past couple of months, Malaysia has been suffering. The sporadic spitting of rain has not been enough to fill our reservoirs resulting in government issued water rationing.
Mix the haze in with this dry heat and you get grumbling, restless people.
Today, tiring of our complaints, Zeus relented, showering us with hope for clear blue skies and overflowing reservoirs.
Rivulets of raindrops raced down leaves forming small puddles. Quenching a profound thirst, roots accepted the gift savoring each drop.
Fighting against the echoes of my childhood, “Rain, rain go away,” I will it to linger.
