Summer 2024: Meetu Mishra

Soft summer breeze

Soft summer breeze,
warm and mellow,
whispering gently,
in the trees,
roses, in full bloom,
swaying with joy,
sunny, bright skies,
birds chirping, in delight,
umbrellas playing hide and seek,
with sun, for fun,
soft summer musical breeze,
summer holidays, have just begun.

Summer vibes
                         
Summer reminds me,
of longest days, shortest nights,
of lazy, cozy afternoons,
relaxing in bed, with a Ruskin Bond book,
relishing mangoes, ice-creams, lemonade,
having the time of my life,
at granny’s place,
umbrellas, hats, sunshades, beaches and sand,
a time to recharge, rejuvenate, reconnect,
summer vibes, pure energy, enthusiasm, smiles.

Summertime magic
                                
Gentle summer breeze,
whistling into my ears,
songs of summertime magic,
leaves rustling, with glee,
chirping birds, happily,
hopping on trees,
flowers, colourful, bright,
celebrating summer delight,
warmth of summer breeze,
so refreshing, reassuring.

Summer tales
                            
Scorching, piercing sun,
hot, flushed, pale face,
no trees, no green shade,
no respite, temperatures soaring,
jungle of concrete, burning in heat,
rivers, lakes, dying of thirst, vanishing,
heatwave alerts everywhere,
massive forest fires rage,
brutally engulfing all life,
leaving a huge plume of smoke,
climate change, a serious threat,
cannot afford to ignore,
our current summer tales.
