a dry season...waiting on rains
The monsoon was a week late, the intense heat simmered my soul, my clothes meshed and fused to my salty body and our tar like shadows followed us slower than usual.
Auntie Josie had the pans on for supper, at least the fish were plentiful. My Grandfather was out in the schooner fishing.
The radio was on the whole time the heat governing the infrequent signal so songs and newscasts would all come and go with long silences in between.
Auntie Josie sang a mantra "When the rain comes cos the rain will purify."
Cooking and cleaning and gazing out to sea.
My sister played her guitar in the shadows the parched notes hung in the air and fell as slow as feathers.......
