murree monsoon: a suite

the clouds hang silent
ensconcing wood and village;
a mountain monsoon

within the dimness,
a cicada cries, lonely
as the call to prayer

outside dripping dark;
inside our ovaltine and
braving of cold sheets

bright fog after rain;
we stand on the bridge watching
the cataract roar

  1. This suite is quite good, my friend. Its imagery took me there, and I was awed viewing the cataract from the bridge. One point of clarification: is the line “ensconcing wood AND village” or is it “ensconcing wooden village”?
