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:


      south west
      monsoon wind

      monsoon wind
      seasonal heavy rain
      beware floods

      can also be

      downpours brought by monsoon winds
      nature crying

      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…
