REMEMBER THOSE DAYS

Remember those days

when I lurked around the school library

along with my friends

trying to find that one book

that stings your page turning fingertips

even while experiencing tiredness

while every single bone of your body retorts

in your every nerve.

 

Remember those days

having your lunch

in the giant staircase,

chatting about the day

with great humor.

 

Remember those days

before the summer break

while we start the countdown

a month ago.

 

Remember those days

while i felt ironic

when someone said that

this is the best part of your life.

As we get to do so much of homework

which had to be done withcreativity

all through the holidays.

 

‘Experience is the best teacher’

My school days was indeed

the best part of my life.

 

Sunny goes out, Breezy comes in

After a long time cool breeze struck at night.

It was both intimidating and heavy.

Heavy enough to push a lot of things at home

which were by now used to the static environment.

The breeze was deafening

But yet it was welcomed.

We opened our doors and came out

to feel the cool breeze outside.

Its been a long time to see

so many residents out in their balconies.

Laughter and cries of children

were growing louder.

A day that we have all longed for so long.

Sweat Sweat All Day

Couldn’t bear the heat

even in my couch.

Summer holidays sets in

but no going out.

I had a lot of plans for this summer.

I thought I would arrange my bookshelf,

paint my mud pot,

do artistic gardening in coffee mugs,

go out everyday and

make new friends.

But when the time actually sets in

I just sat in my couch

and watched TV all day.

After all this year was the hottest summer I ever faced in my city. That sort of heat makes you tired without almost doing anything. So here ends all my summer plans. There are a lot of interesting stuff that we can do indoors too but having a TV at home with all those interesting channels there is no space for any creative stuff.

It takes every bit of self control to keep myself away from TV. Watching TV is not a usual affair with me. But come on, it’s summer. Summer holidays has its own dear exceptions.

Just do what you like and enjoy your holidays like never before. Coz if you are going to miss it there is no taking back. You need to wait for one whole year for this wonderful time. Happy summer holidays.
