Rainy Season

June 13, 2008 15 comments

Malawi 1991

how the water so often failed
in the rains

we rushed out in swimsuits
to shower in the deluge
laughing as we shared soap and shampoo
our simmering enmity
almost forgotten

water flowed in rivulets
down our breasts and thighs

the warm scent of rain drenched soil

the fish eagle’s cry.
