“smell of rain” by Ngetha.

Simplicity and elegance often equate with eloquence. This is the kind of poem that is often attempted but it is rare for the subject to be conjured so beautifully and fully. She appears like magic. The poem and the woman described are both exquisitely beautiful and very sensual and the poem has great control over rhythm and a subtle depth in the thinking.
