Memory of Caribbean Rains

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 3 by Nhojj

/

about

Even as a child, this alternating rain and sunshine, that marks rainy seasons in the Caribbean, fascinated me...

lyrics

We could see it coming over the sea
A dark cloud of beauty
A dark cloud of relief
Relief from the heat
Hot and humid and heavy 
Like a wool blanket on a summer afternoon 
Perspiration dripping down brows
Backs soaked wet with droplets of sweat
Then the rains came...

I remember these rains
Drops big like guinep
Pelting down from the sky 
Beating rhythms on galvanized roofs
Like a million little rain spirit feet pounding a complex and mesmerizing African dance
Heavy and wild and glorious
And then like magic it’s gone
Leaving in it’s wake
The sound of birds 

This land is the place where I stayed 
While I waited to grow up and move away...
