Answer: "Sometimes Enkai is Enkai Narok, the Black God, happy with us and blanketing the sky with dark clouds that pour out rain to nourish the plains."
In "The Beginnings of the Maasai" the myth of the Maasai people is told by Neiterkob's daughter to tell the readers about the origins of these people. The particular excerpt where the speaker talks of Enkai having different identities shows or tells how the weather changes. Enkai changes to Enkai Narok or the Black God. And when he's happy with the people, he covers the sky with dark clouds and provides rain to nourish the land.
Using the process of elimination, the answer could not be a simile due to the lack of "As" and "like" in the excerpt. Personification might not be the answer because the lonely man described in the text is a man, a person, and not an inanimate object. Let me know what the correct answer was!
