Waiting for the Rain

I’ve been thankful when June came in. Far more than marking another milestone in my daughter’s education, it was supposed to be a welcome reprieve from the blistering summer. To a family who had to forgo getting an aircon, it was definitely worth anticipating.

The wait had to extend to half a month though as the first droplet of June’s rains started pouring just early this week. For three days now the passes of the showers were generally short-lived. It lasted a few hours at best during afternoons though it was definitely better than having to sleep in a room where the heat accumulated from an arid afternoon.

So the turn of the year nears. At least says the faint trickling of drizzle drops left from this afternoon’s rain while I puff my usual afternoon cigarette smoke into the invigorated ambiance.
