DEAR DRY SEASON
You have deepened and come full strength this March.
We basked in your drizzles and spontaneous showers to start.
Even within those day of Carnival sass,
Knowing full well it will surely pass.
So January and February's tease alas,
Have petered out now, to your full blast.

The ice cold beer seems so much more appealing.
With tea left in the refrigerator cooling.
The whirr of the fan these days seems a must,
And such is fitting i tell you, and just.
For your feverishly rising temperature,
Approaching Easter, is oh so familiar.

Arid the mountains then, until when in June,
Will once again rains come, and narry too soon.
So alas and adieu;
A cold sip now for sure.

  1. I so enjoyed your letter to a dry season, Gillena. I love the lines:
    'We basked in your drizzles and spontaneous showers to start.
    Even within those day of Carnival sass'
    and
    'Arid the mountains then, until when in June'.
    I could so with just a smidgen of your sunshine at the moment, Gillena, It's so cold here :(
