Treasure Island

Mamta Agarwal

(March 27,1951 / India)

! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! A moment in time! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Summer at peak;
a young man
in a white singlet.

Summer at peak;
a young girl
in short sleeves.

Summer at peak;
A child licks
Ice cream.

Summer at peak;
an infant
On inhaler.

Summer at peak;
A young couple
Cosy in cinema hall seats.

Summer at peak;
A vendor
Sells lime water.

Summer at peak;
Gulmohar petals
lie limp on grass.

Summer at peak;
Dust haze,
Road rage.

Summer at peak;
beads of sweat
slide on lips.

Summer at peak,
Street wars,
Blame it on heat.

    The poem reflects a slice of realism, - indeed the summer in Delhi is at its
    peak! And the forecast is that every year this heat will gradually rise due to
    global warming! Alarming! 10!

    The imagery of summer.I can feel the warmth. But where
    do all those moments go? The leaves will be falling
    before you know it. Very nostalgic, Mamta.

    As always,
