Monsoon Arrival


Grey dusty days washed clear away,

clouds collide, rivers rise,

dawn-birds praise fresh-rinsed blue skies.


Crisp emerald leaves emerge complete,

puddles pool, paddies flood,

seeds burst deep in fertile mud.


Birds-eye view, when Noah’s doves flew;

blinking ponds, steaming warmth,

delta’s heartbeat to monsoon storms.
