THE SUMMER~by Rajendra Padhi




The red lotuses burn in a leafy pool
The blazing sun at its prime curls,
Bleeding out beauty of nearby hills
The birds fumble in savage heat
And rumble in a song in sickly tone.

The buds are locked up for a smile
The wind sings soliloquy of death,
The sweat like snakes rolls on skin
The brown cup of tea turns salty.

The slanderous eyes burnt for a look
Faces shinning with beads of sweat,
Hearts don’t burn with fire of love
Out worn the mind in fatigue
Orphaned streets like jaws of shark
Wide-opened for sunstroke to kill.

I lie on dry grass of my lawn yawning
Drift out sweat droplets over flowing,
Still I commune the day of sizzling rays
The blinking eyes of workers pain
In an agony of fulfilling their belly.

Still I keep vigil the summer retreat
It racks but without sun we can’t live.
