I welcomed you with groans and scowls,
How I yelled and cursed in your face
And shielding mine with scarves and hats,
Fighting for the spot near air cooler.
As I walked back home wiping my brows,
You gave me a good reason to smile.
I saw children playing and enjoying the
Summer vacation your time brings.
I recollect my daily ecstasy of cold baths
And melting ice down my breathless face,
Of the smell of mangoes and fresh cream
The long holidays with joyous families
I savour ice-cream like it deserves to be,
My runs feel so rewarding and complete.
The hazy light adds golden touches around,
Brightening the colors to an intense life .
I was too quick to judge and condemn you.
Tiny distinct joys bask under your hot rays.
We are not friends yet or ever… But now think,
I am ready to call it a truce… what about you?
A little tribute to summer 🙂 Caught the golden beauties on my way to work.
Day 1 of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge for which the wonderful Rob nominated. His sense of humour is one of the best I have come across 🙂 Check out his lovely blog!
My first nomination for this is Tonya. Her blog is breathtaking, tranquil and poetic. The challenge is – “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”
