Journey of Seasons | Summer | A Poem

If you must bring upon
your rays of heat,
shine on,
beautiful they are.
I shall not ask for the clouds
to cover themselves over you,
or for the rain to drown
you in its waters.

I shall only ask
for the gentle wind to blow,
to become my companion
in this journey of seasons.

When snow comes
I shall look upon your heat
longingly and so I shall
not ask you to leave.
I shall only ask for little
drops of kindness
everywhere you go. 

Without your rays,
what would I see?
A dark abysmal pit
devoid of hope.
Without your rays,
what would I see?
No colors to embrace. 

And so, I shall only ask
for the gentle wind to blow,
to become my companion
in this journey of seasons. 


It’s summer and the heat gets a little unbearable at times, especially when I’m on the road, with a heavy backpack, lunch on one hand and the umbrella on the other. But it’s divine when the wind blows, gentle enough to sooth the blazing heat across the sky. It’s like my heart becomes a little lighter and nature reminds me of balance, of the beauty of the little moments, of the escaping moments of satisfaction.
