Summer Solstice


The longest day

Draped in black monsoon sari

Weeps a river

I smile

At her kohl smudged eye

As my fevered skin breathes blessings

The twittering, chirping little fairies

Touch each other’s wings

Bathing in the little pools

Appearing on the pathways

My heart sprouts

Blue glossy peacock feathers

And dances with thunderclap songs

On this longest day of the year

Let the days shed their light

Let the dark hours be gleeful

Let time’s hand pluck

The weary leaf one by one

And cover the ground

Nothing can take away today’s joy

When the monsoon taps her dancing feet

And the sun stands still
