A consideration of summer in Africa. Second Place in Verdant Poetry Contest, Summer 2020.
Southern Hemisphere Summer

African rain
drowns the desperate heat,
its driving deluge, lightning sheet,
wipes the sweat from your brow,
soothing those baked and burning pains,
November’s gift here now,
summer’s refrain.
