Easter Sunday, Lake Baringo
The rising and falling,
fire and ice, droplets and friction,
discharge in deep groans…
Our darkness lit, just for a moment,
earth rejoicing in rain after
three bone-dry days.
Closer, and ever closer.
[I spent Easter with family in Kenya, and Sunday produced the most magnificent thunderstorm. The hippos that mooched past our veranda seemed unperturbed.]
