Cumulus cloud turning into nimbus or rain cloud
The afternoon becomes cooler and cooler each day
in May - dragonflies hover lower and lower in horde;
distant drums get closer and closer, the winds hiss
as the sky falls in thunderous downpour
like a coming train, pelting the faces of happy children,
laughing, laughing with the birth of streams
that wake the river, the fields from deep slumber,
ending many dreams in a long, hot summer.
