Summer

Written by: Ramesh Anand

summer dawn –
the path of cowries
beyond the sea 


summer dream
counting the butterflies
in neighbor’s garden


piercing the 			
breeze, my chute lifts –
summer beach	


summer twilight . . .
the bee eater stirring
tall grass

summer sunset – 
changing colour of
rising waves


summer's end . . .
the waterfall thunders into
my laughter


last day of summer
bouncing, the pool ball
of her eyes


summer ends
the wallah takes down
the raincoat array
