Life reflections

#SoCS June 29/19


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “for/fore/four.” Use one, use ’em all, use ’em any way you want. Enjoy!

Weather changes, climate changes and all sorts of changes are happening in this world. Many are for the better and so many more for the worse. I live near the west coast of south India. The south-west monsoon usually begins in the first week of June and continues till the end of September but we continue to get occasional rains till end of November. Last year the rains started on time and continued raining till September and stopped completely. The result of that was water scarcity this year.

This year the rains did not begin in the first week. We were waiting for the rains and they did not come and when they did come it was as if they had come reluctantly. June is almost over and we are still waiting for the rains. Of the four months of our monsoon season the first is almost over. We should be feeling the rain  instead of seeing the sun. I wonder what will happen next year. The sun is in the forefront instead of the rains. We keep telling each other the rains will come. But at the same time there is this uneasy and anxious feeling because nothing is in our hands. We have to wait and pray that our waiting will not be in vain.
