July and The Magical Monsoons

June had teased
with just the hint of
bountiful rains.
Is time for dry summer heat
to bid adieu.
A soul drenching embrace
from swollen grey clouds,
awaits the parched earth.
Sweet whispers
from gently undulating trees
croon the song of life.
It's time for the elements
to get together and rejoice.
It's a test for
the farmers' prayers
to be answered by the heavens.

Is for a furious roar
from the skies
to announce the arrival
of the bountiful monsoons.
To awaken the barren bower
from somnolence and
bless the earth
with a rejuvenating fragrance.
