monsoon is reluctant to quit limelight
loath to retire for annual repose
thunder gleefully claps with all its might
susurrus leaves wait for a cue to fall
to colour earth stage in feuille morte shades
rain’s desire dazzling last hurrah for all
to be special. So, brazenly invades
autumn’s space, falling in gushing cascades.
