An attempt to write poetry in the middle of the monsoon rains

Raindrops falling from the heavens

Slowly land in the moist ground

Make a soft thud, gentle, even

Sky’s tears cool the breeze around

Sends to pleasant slumber, the one I love


I’m finally back and writing. Heavy rains have become really usual lately here in Manila because of the monsoon, and you might have heard of that. Luckily, our house is in high ground so we aren’t affected by the floods. Sadly, my parents’ house has been affected (the water was up to their knees) and also those of my friends. I hope everything will be okay.
