A flashback-win

I remember those days of long summer
Oh, the joys of school summer vacation
Of playing hide and seek to endless hours
Pretending to slay the ferocious dragon
And to catch the notorious dacoit Ravan.

When all else played, at trees we looked up
In the hope to find the juiciest fruit mango
Now we looked down, mangos looked up.
Before I could satisfy my hunger with amigos
Were chased out by fuming gardener Rodrigo.

And still not giving up, seeking other means
To the neighbor’s fence we would climb over
Lurk in the shadows when all clear and clean
Obliged juicy fruits that calling us under cover
Less forbidding but exciting, if not any more.

    Hi Dr. Ram, congratulations on your well-deserved win in the contest! This write makes me feel so nostalgic beause I had the same experience while I was growing up. Mangoes are my favorite fruit and I even wrote a Haiku about them! Actually, I would appreciate a good mango lassi right now! Warmest regards.

    A fantastic poem, Dr. Ram! Reminds me of climbing the mango and avocado trees when I was a child growing up in S. Florida. Love and Blessings, Rhonda
