Gloomy Summer

Dry spell happened even before summer truly began

It’s been hot and humid, to the heat I’m not a fan.

And now on recent days it’s been rainy and gloomy

It’s like a weird summer abnormality.

But to the cooler weather, I am not complaining

I wouldn’t complain even if it were raining.

I welcome this cooler summer while it lasts

As it won’t stay like this for long, according to the forecasts.

Scorching Summer

The ray of sun pierces through the window

The light’s reflection playfully bounces

Outside, the heat of the sun is scorching

Summer is creeping in

Sleepy and Sweaty

I wouldn’t have mind the humidity 

I would’ve kept my flexibility 

Had it been I was on vacation 

Rather than trying to get some sleep in my room
I wouldn’t have mind sweating so

Had it been I was exercising or was on the go

But I am just trying to catch a good nights sleep
I flip over, bounce about just looking for the right spot

But sleepless night I got

How will I sleep soundly with this humidity?

Scorching

See poetry isn’t always about love and loss
It can be about nature, the environment and a greater cause.

About the planet, the greenhouse effect, pollution
About rebuilding, finding better alternatives, and solutions.

Most plants, trees, animals, are dying
What are we, in our little ways, doing?
We need to take action instead of moping and crying.

I can feel the world is sick because of what we have done
Look at the world now and what it has become.

Summer has always been hot but now it’s scorching
Let’s face it, taking a blind eye isn’t working.

This poetry may not do so much
But I hope it reaches people and they feel touched
By how wonderful Mother Nature truly is
And keeping her safe means for our own good, that’s the purpose of this.
