Trip to my Native!

1. Summer Vacation Fun
Drawing water from the well,
Listening to the Bull’s tinkering bell.
Drinking Cow’s thick, tasty milk,
Feeling the grass, as smooth as silk.
Climbing trees with invariable cuts and bruise
Peddling in the streamlet as if it is a cruise.
Yelling in the hill-top, Swaying in the wind,
Elders calling on to us, “Are you out of your mind?”
Cooking with logs and firewood,
Nostalgia hits me, Reliving my childhood!
2. Rainy Season
Rain lashed mud roads,
Creaking crickets, Croaking toads,
Ferocious sea, Gurgling river,
Even with a hot cup of tea, I shiver!
Land of beaches, plateau and plain
Paddy crops sway in the terrain,
Singing cuckoos, Dancing peacocks,
It rains in intervals round the clock!
Looking around what is to be seen?
Order of the day is Green,
Of the four seasons, come what may,
Rains are always joyous and gay!
3. Holiday with Cousins.
I jump in the streamlet, I roam in the sun.
I play with my 3 & 7-year-old cousins.
The grass cuts my legs, thorns prick my feet,
But I forget everything as I hear the parrots tweet.
With them I am a child again, laughing & yelling,
All through the short holiday, singing & enjoying.
It’s like Magic, Lo’ Behold,
My granny’s place brings in Joys untold!
