Forest in Monsoon

The swollen, serpentine stream was in spate

babbling and burbling it moved at a rapid pace

the vibrant, verdant valley with vantage views

was resplendent in efflorescence of myriad hues

a carnival of fragrance blew in the air

the plump, pregnant raindrops plopped without a care

the canopy of leaves feebly pierced by chords of light

the cicadas played a symphony, and all was right.

  1. This is beyond beautiful. I could place myself at that flooding river where light barely penetrated the canopy of leaves. How tranquil you have described the forest in monsoon. Btw, love the word ‘spate’ – it’s not commonly used and it’s refreshing.
