Monsoon

Monsoon

A Poem by Gautham Sathyan
"

Nature's beauty

"
The wait is over
for the seasonal change
nourished crops
with the monsoon arrived
from the blossoming of trees
to harvesting of seeds
grounded by the moist air
nature in its utmost core
people cherished
the moment of life
above it sways
and below it rains
children danced
as the raindrops fell
drizzled rain
implanted the seed of life
suppressed by the outer force
created a larger picture
with the new beginning
the farmer smiled.

Lyrical and beautiful poem. Lovely flow and eloquent, descriptive imagery of the Monsoon cycle and the people whose lives depend on it. “Above it sways, and below it rains.”- life and death hang in the balance of of the growth of seeds. Powerful, pristine, important. Well-done.

Good one. Monsoon holds a pretty significant place in our Urdu literature. So, to give it a try in English is something new. I like it!

lovely! We can feel the "seasonal change", and see the people and the children dancing along with the falling rains!

Very descriptive. I love the sense of imagery evoked from here. It was as if the buzz of life was so dull a noise it was electric. It flowed from the rain drops, the crops, the trees, and carried by moist air. This season sounds ultra productive for the farmer as he gazes, in amazement, at his land. Very appreciative piece. I love marveling at the seasons and smiling at the product of their nature. Simply beautiful. Great read, friend.
