When the island is dry and dusty, we long for Summer rain to water the trees, plants and flowers. Here is an excerpt of a poem I wrote last Summer

Summer Rain

Summer rain brings relief to all,

From heat and dust as droplets fall.

A vibrant rainbow adorns the sky,

An arching spectrum, way up high.

Steamy air ascends and climbs,

Creative mist in swirling lines.

Leaves and petals, luminous and bright,

Glowing so fresh, an alluring sight.

A rich sweet fragrance fills the air,

A priceless perfume, could not compare.
