A thick blanket of grey clouds hovers precipitously above the horizon. Claps of thunder rumbled across the darkened skies as the cumulus gathers densely.
At first, the water drops came light and in sparse intervals, each drop distinctly audible like music notes sprinkling over zinc roofs. Soon, the choruses of rain transform into a cacophony of wild, torrential confusion.
And so the water dragon is mightily unleashed on the first day of the Lunar New year. Did you have a wet new year’s day too?
No sooner than 2 hours later, the skies cleared and the rejuvenated earth glistens. Slushy and soggy. But gloriously refreshed.
Happy Lunar New Year everyone!
