Song of monsoon

Over dark, rainy nights,

Thundering clouds, the

Quivering silence of soul brushes against,

Unforgettable rim,

Of recollections,

As each drop pit patters,

Crossing multitudes,

Plummeting through images it settles on rim,

Of dainty bud coaxing,

To open its layers,

Bud and soul pondering,

Nature plays awhile.

Circumspect to open their oft hidden layers,

Song of monsoon calling,

Beauty to reveal.

Poetry Form :- Double ennead ( 99 syllables of 3 stanzas ; 6/5/11/6/5 syllables in each stanza )

Thoughts :- Like how the song of monsoon coaxes a bud to open its layers and bloom into a pretty flower, the same song of monsoon coaxes one to recollect old memories. Unknown and unseen, nostalgia emerges.

Acknowledgements :- Originally written for Carrot Ranch Rodeo Double Ennead Challenge 2020. Double Ennead is a brainchild of our host, Colleen.M. Chesebro.

Theme Prompt:-  Haiku by Sue Vincent:- 

clouds cover the moon,
beyond dawn's pale horizon
sun rises unseen
