[Writer's island] Soul...



sunlight
piercing through the skin
sweat
dripping from every pore

days
seem to go never ending
nights
wish they went on forever

summer
God, i hate this climate
winter
will i ever get to see this?

swap places
i wish i could
live in an igloo
wrapped in a bundle

when will this end
put me out of my mysery
so my soul can take flight
feel free...

Aaarti (c) 15th april


A poem that i wrote trying to distract myself from the unbearable heat.. ended up with my soul wanting to fly away and be free[which is the prompt at Writers Island this week]... :)
Chennai is known for its HOT KILLING SUMMER'S, infact that is one reason, why a lot of people DONT want to visit or move to this city.. summer's are killing.. we basically have three seasons through the year..
Hot.. Hotter.. Hottest.. :)

Ah! we often prefer the opposite to the weather we're getting at the moment.
You describe the sentiment well.

Just thought of dropping some color to weave your tapestry.

I know the climate in Chennai.The heat sure makes you want to jump in a lake,but nice to know it can provoke poetry too :D
