Monsoon Retreat


MONSOON RETREAT

We waken to a musical world—
Rainwater pigtails
Spiraling downward,
Bright choral after a storm;
Tiny gales, whistling ghosts;
Birds warbling a capella,
Spherical notes sliding down
Sides of a glass of ice water.

For Tita Lilia Tantoco


Raindrops on window pane after a storm
