It's been so hot and dry lately, but yesterday we had an unexpected little thunder shower. it was here and gone but left everything wet and cooled off. and it inspired me.
the boredom of the heat
Days go by
I become too aware of mortality
My heart in need of life
my health is cracked and parched
and the grass browns in the sun.
A rumbling occurrence
the rolling forgotten sound
quiet little thunder
dare my drying psyche hope
a drop …another
My head thrown back the rain
the rain washes my face and chest
filling the cracks
the earth wetting
Pushing away the dull smells of heat
Clapping big thunder
Watering my heart that it might grow again
Immortality touches the water
coolness is cleaned and wet
Thirst no more today.
There is choral piece Isaw performed some years ago called "La LLuvia"..which is spanish for "the rain". It is a certain treat for the ears.
I was only able to find one clip of a performance of it on youtube, and it's not the entire piece but just an excerpt from the middle part..the rainstorm..never the less this is the highlight part. the clip is cut short and the audience cheers at the thunder which is distracting but listen anyway, and watch how they make it happen. listen to the sound of La LLuvia..
