The heatwave breaks

After so many days

of breathless heat,

rainfall sounds like music.

The first drops like strings

introducing the melody,

then the full orchestra joins

as the rain becomes a downpour,

with thunder like timpani

rolling wildly overhead.

And when the performance ends

the dripping and trickling

sounds like applause

and the footsteps of an audience

leaving the Concert Hall.
