She Sings Her Monsoon Song

jumble-of-clouds

 

It’s a pleasure when the frowning sun quits

Heaps of inky clouds frolic in the sky

Into the realm of verse she lunges and flits

 

With the rainy balm her tawny skin’s lit

I read her verdant lines in jasmine rhyme

It’s a pleasure when the frowning sun quits

 

Her voice jingles ditty in busy bee feet

That peacock dance meter spellbinds the eye

Into the realm of verse she lunges and flits

 

With an eddy of breeze love odes she knits

Her passions in streams brim over and lie

It’s a pleasure when the frowning sun quits

 

The rumbling clouds, the lightening in a fit

Delights her for her words will no more be dry

Into the realm of verse she lunges and flits

 

Her cantos will flow on in litchis sweet

Rhythms will pitter patter on leaves high

It’s a pleasure when the frowning sun quits

Into the realms of verse she lunges and flits

  1. I am glad the rains have come for you. I liked the theme of your villanelle: when the sun stops frowning poetry flows perhaps like rain. It is similar to the way winter feels to me. The sun seems distance and it gets cold rather than dry and I long for warmth and mild spring rains. I sense your joy seeing “inky clouds frolic in the sky”. Nice villanelle!

  2. A pleasure indeed when the frowning sun quits ~ A lovely flowing villanelle and these lines are so creatively penned:

    Her voice jingles ditty in busy bee feet

    That peacock dance meter spellbinds the eye

    Into the realm of verse she lunges and flits

  3. Ah, you do high justice to monsoon! And to villanelle. This was a delight to read, even though I’ve experienced the faux monsoon of South Korea. Truly, the days of rain began to seem anything but cloying beauty! That’s the joy of poetry… the surprising perspectives we encounter.

Thank You :)
