                                  The sea of green
                                  like Ireland
                                  in the khareef mist
                                  a moist blanket
                                  blown in from the Arabian Sea
                                  like new pool table felt
                                  with pomegranates, coconuts
                                  cherries, Indian apples
                                  bananas and mango trees
                                  waterfall-covered mountains 
                                  the tourists swarm
                                  like ants around a water bottle
                                  an oasis in the desert
                                  of peach trees and frankincense
                                  in the cool summer breeze
                                  blooming time  
                                  the magic green hills
                                  after a rain
                                  rolling like waves

  1. Salalah is the second largest city in the Sultanate of Oman and was the traditional residence of the sultan.It has a hot desert climate, although it is cooler in the summer than most of the rest of the country, and is quite cloudy during the monsoon (khareef) season. With Yemen, it is the only place on the Arabian peninsula that experiences a monsoon season. The climate permits agricultural activity, at least in terms of some vegetables and fruits. The city is a popular tourist spot during khareef, when the normally brown landscape is transformed to a lush green.
