It has been two weeks without 'actual' rains in Blantyre.
All we have are 'showers'.
Some people depend on the rains as a free source of water in a commercial city (Blantyre) where water is as scarce as gold.
Without it, many are lost.
However, other people are happy. They say the rains' 'behaviour' are an indication that we will have bumper yields this year.
We choose to believe them, because we love our country, and always hope for the better.
But let the rains come, anyway. That children may walk in between the drops, and feel on top of the world.
