Agua De Abril

Out in the driveway I stood
and raised my arms into the red sky.
A day after sensing its arrival
the first droplets of rain has fallen.

Temperatures in the Philippine capital continued to rise Thursday afternoon, with the mercury registering at 36.2 degrees celsius, the hottest in Metro Manila so far this year.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) recorded the temperature at 3 p.m. but an observation officer said it might still go up in the next hour.

Three days ago, the temperature climbed to 36.1 C, then the hottest for the year. Thursday's maximum temperature is close to breaching last year's record of 36.6 C.
