Desert Monsoon

The clouds are stacking up high
In that clear blue afternoon sky
Turning the scorching sun to mere silver lining
Raising a cool hope in all desert being
Is that the long-awaited monsoon coming? 
Who would know? 
The wind blows westward steadfast
Giving the convoy of clouds a warm piggyback 
But who knows when…? 
The clouds will turn into precious monsoon rain
Or just evaporate spontaneously once again! 

Oh monsoon rain
You kept us all in clear suspense
Desert being are dreaming of you for so long
Are you, or are you not visiting us soon? 

The clouds have covered the June evening sky
Colored light brown like bowl of boiled rice
Signaling monsoon rain may be on its way
Sooner we can hope for something real nice!

The passage into mystery always refreshes.
If, when we work, we can look once a day
upon the face of mystery,
then our labour satisfies.
