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.
