Burning torches are the only source of light. Shadows flicker and dance over the parched earth. Good rain is coming tonight.
Wind brings dry leaves and dust drifting light. Branches heavy with rotting fruit hang in the dark. Good rain is coming tonight.
The bored concubine fans herself in the muggy twilight. A fly rests unnoticed on the arm of her silk robe. Good rain is coming tonight.
Monks and shamans and village women chant by flickering light. The wells and pools are dry and silent. Good rain is coming tonight.
The candle on the child’s dresser topples, and sets the room alight. Fire runs through the house. Good rain is here tonight. [Loo Ching Ling 吕晶琳]
