Poem About North Indian Summer

The poetic season of monsoon in North Indian plains is preceded by intense summer when temperatures soar up to 47 degrees Celsius. Heat and dust prevail everywhere and humanity seems to buckle down with languor and lethargy. To those unaccustomed to the harsh weather conditions, venturing out at peak hours may be perilous, with risk of succumbing to heatstroke. All eyes are pinned to the skies above, praying for clouds to emerge and descend down on mother earth and cool the raging fires.

Wow. Wonderful description. I am actually quite surprised you got a rhyme in there. That is very hard for me to do.

Parched throat, roasted skin,
Scorching sun rays, blazing winds
Soul sizzling within!

ABOUT THE POET:

I am a practising orthodontist with a passion for writing. My debut book of short stories and poems ,SHUFFLING SEASONS TELLING TIES is available online worldwide at amazon.com I can write a poem on almost any subject, anytime. I feel blessed to have inherited this gift from my late father, also a writer, Mr.S.K.Ambardar. My husband, Dr. Arvinder Singh supports me wholeheartedly in my writing pursuits, and went out of his way to paint the cover of my debut book of fiction, published in Aug 2014 I became aware of haiku form of poetry through this website and found its sequence of 5/7/5 syllables restricted to just three lines very fascinating. To be able to say it all applying a minimalistic concept helps explore new vistas of creative poetry!
