HAIKU

monsoon winds bring rain
for some… respite from drought…
flooding danger too

  1. Mick thanks for participating…but do not how it will sound but my challenge was not 5-7-5 or freeverse…had mentioned 3 formats…but am accepting this because this is too good and apt…

    1. Silly me, however, these, although technically haiku:

      wind
      monsoon
      rain

      south west
      monsoon wind
      downpours

      monsoon wind
      seasonal heavy rain
      beware floods

      can also be

      precipitation
      downpours brought by monsoon winds
      nature crying

      rain
      monsoon winds
      strife for some

      also qualifies as a haiku

      the general rule of thumb is lines can be less, as in 1,7,2 – 5, 3, 3, as long as they don’t exceed the 5,7,5 format, but even the masters made exceptions.

      Regardless I am honoured that you accepted my entry, many thanks Sangbad…
