Oh, how much you are welcome here; on the heels of scorching heat; the landscape dull and devoid of color; the air, a stifling haze. But why must you come with such vengeance? Falling from darkness; amongst thunderous booms and electric lights; saturating the parched earth in torrents. At last, you settle in. Your pace slows to a steady drumbeat; the perfect guest bringing welcome relief, and leaving behind restored vibrance.
