Monsoon Countdown

by Harry

Submitted by Thotpurge

Dervishes dance in swirling robes of grey,
circling around our summer emptiness,
the gloomy cadence of the flutes of May,
remember monsoon songs of loneliness.
In opaque mists, a thirsty heart still pines,
shadows huddle in a dissonant head,
broken quatrains shiver on rain drenched lines,
skies cough and wheeze in murky cloaks of dread.

A eulogy lingers, wrapped in oilskin,
memories trickle from a choir of leaves,
the deluge outside floods the soul within,
a watery dirge plays under the eaves.
Like petrichor, love once rose with the breeze,
while rainbows twisted through the verdigris.
