A Dusting of Rain

From a sky clear of clouds-

sunny and blue and bright,

through the air, clear of dust-

clean and clear and bright,

drops a sparkling drizzle of rain.

It will not last long, no clouds holding

buckets and buckets of water-

indeed the sun’s rays are strong and golden

from a blazing blue sky

but from thence come the drops of water,

glinting and golden, sparkling

like diamonds-

children play in this, a dusting of rain;

bright and cheerful, happy and content.

Unusual happening,

the rain and sun mixed,

sun not too hot, rain a sprinkly drizzle,

balm on the skin that it bathes,

quickly warmed and dried by the

golden sunshine-

It is beautiful, a

dusting of a drizzle of rain,

all mixed and sprightly with

the sun’s golden light and rays

a dusting of rain to polish the mind

and lift the heart to holy high praise.

Err, this is not a dusting, but a deluge, more common than not in Kampala.
