A SUMMER DAY


A Warm summer day,
Green grass, blue skies.
Children playing, birds flying
Boys running,
Mothers with strollers walking through.
Flowers blooming, bees buzzing
Butterflies atop, then disappear into the sky.

Young men playing basketball,
women jogging by.
A couple sit on the park bench, holding hands
Talking, laughing, enjoying an evening together.
A subtle glance, a passionate kiss
A pat on the back, then goodbye.

The sky turns orange
The air is cool,
The children gone, the courts silent,
The jogging path deserted.
The park bench empty.
Night has fallen, Another day gone by.

Summer day...you said it all!!!

Yesterday - 21st of June - first official of summer day is celebrated in the name of 'fete de la musique' in France. Everywhere music in the streets and all. Nice concept and all. Everything got spoiled by the rain. Mother Nature didn't like French having too much fun I guess...

Nice post and a beautiful photograph.
Delhi's summer is horrible

"A couple sit on the park bench, holding hands
Talking, laughing, enjoying an evening together.
A subtle glance, a passionate kiss
A pat on the back, then goodbye."

This reminds me of days when I used to bunk from office to meet "him" and then back to home in evening at my normal timings.

starry nights 9:38 PM
