Afternoon

Peeking sun
Pic by Jeevan (click to enlarge)
In the silence of afternoon
myna plays music
using its chirruping notes
perch to a gulmohar branch.

The early sea breeze
usually embraces in mid-summer
illuminates the memories
of sweet summer holidays.

The usually lazy afternoon
plays active role in mind
engage seek with memories
fishing the best out of memory.

The mild sunshine
coming out of cold winter
the year’s first raindrop
touched the ground a day ago.

Sipping away a tea
at the end of afternoon
cherishes the mind ever so
to fly like squeaking parakeets.

Ah, the poem and the picture remind me of days when just watching the afternoon grey into the evening and blacken into the night provided contentment. That seems like a long time ago now!
