Seasons - Monsoon

Hot corn cobs popped on embers of coal,
Watching the giant waves, being showered by spray.
Monsoon memories for free.

Multicoloured umbrellas to twirl over your head,
Splashing through puddles, running in the rain.
Monsoon memories for free.

Jeans that are specked with splashes of mud,
Clothes drying indoors, the faint smell of must.
Monsoon memories for free.

Enjoying the drizzle from the safety of home,
A mug of steaming coffee, plates of pakodas well made.
Monsoon memories for free.

Sticking out your tongue to catch the raindrops,
A faint burst of sun, the sudden downpour.
Monsoon memories for free.

Drabble (n) - an extremely short work exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.

So you got tired of writing prose and tried poetry for a change. Pretty good for a first attempt. I tried to put it to the tune of 'these are a few of my favourite things' but didnt quite suceed. Shall make up a tune and start singing it. Must hurry though before the monsoons come to an end. My favourite would be a mug of piping hot tea and a plate of hot pakoris.Ah bliss

I guess you could call it poetry, but actually, I was just trying a new form of prose where you abandon grammar, and just put down bullet points. But I think you would be able to set it to tune.
