Indian Window On The Desert Southwest   Leave a comment

The water that came last winter is long gone.
“Female rain,” it’s called in Navajo:
the gentle, furtive rains that fall from
overcast skies between November and March….
What we’re waiting for now is male rain.
Big, booming, wait-till-your-father-gets-home cloudbursts
that bully up from Mexico and threaten to rip the sky.

— from Making Peace by Barbara Kingsolver
