any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
I LOVE this. We take the same topic and treat it magnificently differently. I'm not used to welcoming a monsoon, but I feel the relief as the heat peels off of you and as the the monsoon's leavings invite you to dance!
It has been incredibly hot here. When the thunderstorms finally come, it is a sweet relief. I like the little magic you imbue in this as well in the fairies and such.
Let the days shed their lightLet the dark hours be gleefulLet time’s hand pluckThe weary leaf one by oneSuch beautiful images.. a delightful read :DLots of love,Sanaa
Even in darkness..light can be found..if we are willing to look..a beautiful poem...
weeps a river - that image really works and captures this, as the sun stands still.
This is SO beautiful, Sumana! I was rapt reading the lines "The longest day / Draped in black monsoon sari / Weeps a riverI smile / At her kohl smudged eye" This is a poem to lift the heart. I especially love the monsoon tapping her dancing feet.
This is really a fine celebration of Summer Solstice, Sumana. And, let nothing take away today's joy. And yes, let even those dark hours be gleeful in some way.
You take my breath away...the sun stands still!
Wow, what the vibrant images of monsoon! The energy in your poem, Sumana, so inspiring and contagious! Thank you :)x
What a joyful celebration of words & season ~ I specially like:My heart sproutsBlue glossy peacock feathersAnd dances with thunderclap songs
This is so beautiful and the scene so easily pictured in your descriptive words.
What a lovely poem Sumana. Your mind created the perfect images to welcome summer. I like so many lines in this and I loved it's soothing style.
Wow!! Loved it!!
What a rich, sensual poem ... and I love the touch of magic.
Gorgeous piece...who can suppress excitement at the first sighting of looming monsoon clouds and then the deluge??...aha!! Enjoyed reading the beautiful poem... a perfect medley that brings alive the rains!!
"...and the sun stands still." Perfect.
Great poem, I like the personification you did for this one.
Oh wow...the color, movement and magic in this is so enchanting!
Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year, when the earth is most inclined towards the sun - I loved the way that you played with the magic of that. And yes, the personification is wonderful!
Such fluidity, loved it.....Beautifully penned!
How delightful this is, Sumana! The monsoons of course are essential for the revitalisation of nature and the growth of new crops. So when the rains come, I can imagine the unbridled joy fo the populace - well expressed here!
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
