Theme: Nostalgia

Winter Sun

Amidst the chilliness
Providing warmth
Seducing us with thy embrace
Soaking men and women
In open spaces
In parks, and in the
Playing fields…

I am hit by nostalgia

Childhood memories
The small town I lived in
And left behind
Lazily idling in the balcony
Fragrance wafting from the
Peeling of oranges
Chatting with family members
And friends
Playing Carrom, Ludo or Chess
The excitement of cricket
Every minute of it
Conveyed in a world without TV
Commentators relaying moments
Controlling heartbeats

A couple of hours or so each day
A quarter of a year in bliss
The disappearance act
Makes way for bitterness and cold
Till thy arrival the following day…
