It's often said that the Chinese dragon brings rain.
But this year, it brought merely clouds but no rains
and merely a blue sky.
The clouds were hovering over our hills,
extending as far the eyes could see
and over the sea.
some were streaking across the sky
branching out like leafless trees in the sky
But they didn't dim our sea
Nor did they dull the colors of our golf courses
But no torrents, merely currrents.
some took to the beaches
But not too many
Perhaps it took time for the Dragon Boat Festival dumplings to be digested, leaving on our beaches nothing but little waves to lap against the shore. .
