Monsoon #midnighthaiku

Biblical deluge
Forty days and forty nights
Great British summer

Thunder booms, lightning scores the iron sky. Rain falls in silver rods, drowning the drainage and making rivers of roads. Within minutes, brakes cease to function and every puddle is a ford. Sodden pedestrians hug the hedge to avoid huge plumes of water churned by passing vehicles. It had been a beautiful morning.

    Sue, I couldn’t resist it. We, in Canada, have been having the same kind of summer so I wrote a song about it and here’s the video.


  3. Ha, we had exactly the same monsoon here last night! Except it was cold and wintery.

    Reading this post, the sky is a brilliant blue, not a cloud in sight. But a thunderstorm is forecast!
