Today's NaPoWriMo challenge is write a seven-line poem called a san san, a Chinese term which means “three three”.
The form includes repetition and rhyme, repeating three terms or images thrice in a seven line rhyme pattern of a-b-c-a-b-d-c-d.
Below is my attempt to write a san san.

rain across the desert dances
storms that move across the earth
clouds that cover sun and moon
tribes that move to drums and dances
moving, shifting, giving birth
called by storm-clouds, moon and season
stars that light-dance cross the cosmos, moon
that pulls us through the storm
