No Rain

It's been over a hundred days since there was measurable precipitation here in the Valley of the Damned Sun. This is the cool time of the year, so it's not as dreadfully notable as it might be, but it's still not a comfortable weather feeling.

I miss the rain. I'd really like to live in a place that rains. I got some good precipitation while I was visiting Guide Dog Aunt, so I'm not as desperate for it as I could be, but I'd really like to see some rain.

It was all clouded up this morning when I was walking to work. There's something about a cloudy day that cheers me up.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
