The Monsoon Brings Life to the Desert
the early summer monsoon
seldom visits
but means wind, rain, thunderstorms
occasional micro-bursts
not like the mean-spirited VIRGA
who only rains dirt
monsoon brings renewed life to the desert
softens baked earth like
a cookie dipped in milk
so impressive
the air is no longer dead as if purified by the heat
charged with energetic ions
dancing with excitement
three close lightning strikes
oooh, lights out!
 creative.connection  lost
time to abandon rambling write
  feel my way through dark hallway
and peek out waiting window
just as anticipated...
neighbor's message in Morse code
halogen flashlight says
hey, you want to come over?
and bring a couple of fosters.....
once again the monsoon brings life to the desert

"softens baked earth like
a cookie dipped in milk"...fine simile. The power outages were inconvenient--no doubt the wind and lightening strikes were bad enough but at least Bill veered off eh--he swept across Canada's Atlantic provinces instead but didn't make too big of a fuss. Fosters that real beer like here in Saskatchewan? *smiles--wink wink* <---my Morse code that says I'm coming over and bringing REAL beer!
