Is the monsoon I really miss when I think of India
the rampant pouring in the middle of a summer day
this awkward and exhilarating antithesis of cause and effect manifesting simultaneously
It is during the monsoon season we monks loved to meditate in the caves some centuries ago
this unpredictable magic we could never explain
what they call spiritual nowadays.
Oh how I miss the monsoon season in a monastery today as the rain is falling in the middle of the summer…
