Monsoon Storms Build In The Desert

We arrived noticing the clouds to the northeast
“Do you think we will finally get some rain?”
“South of the city got rain last night,
We missed out again.”

So went the conversation, weather again.
Tiring of the topic, other topics began
To work they’re way into our neighborly chat,
As usual, avoiding topics of potential discord.

“What is that? “
“Did you hear that?”
“Sounds like thunder, “was one reply,
As the conversation continued.

Try as we may, the thought of rain remained
In the background of each discussion topic.
Why not? The months without rain,
Record-setting temperatures were killing our plants.

“What is that?”
“Did you hear that?”
All eyes were directed toward the windows
The dialog taking on a tone of excitement – “It’s rain!”

Not just your typical desert rain
Where only a few drops make it to ground
Most devoured by the  dry Sonoran desert air,
We were having a true gully washer!

    Hoping the next few days the monsoon will take off like it did July 2011. — kenne
