Summer Reminisce

Summers under the vast tree
on its branches the birds would sing
Hand fan close by
on a continuous swing.

The charpoy was heaven
blew the warm breeze
  rustling of leaves
The gurgling nearby stream.

Cold water from mud pots
nothing less than holy water
Distant shouts of the village kids
playing in the sweltering heat.

Squinting at the burning sun
as sweat beaded my face
then chuckling at the buffaloes
the mud at a wallowing pace.

By the stream
Catching fish
In and out of the pool
keeping an eye on the spool.

Melting tar
Mirrors the image
Thirsty ‘Kawars’
Soul pilgrimage.
