Rainy Season in Hà Nội
Abrupt – a sudden sweeping;
Disrupting West Lake’s vast serenity.
Erupt – an undulation;
Crescents and slight waves conduct the cityscape.
Via high vantage, the rains bring peace.
As for ancient-modern city streets,
Flooding fails to cease,
Only slow the chaos of life.
Ashen achromatic clouds cradle the relief of green –
Of brown, of branches, of bark - of life.
Flamboyant Fabaceae, Hoa Phương flowers, torn –
Fall for the seasons’
Unstoppable renewal, for which nature is grateful.
