1st December

Summer is around the corner in Mauritius
1st December came in –
Half of my world is in summer
The trees abundantly
Offer their fruits –
For us to eat and to think
Of the graciousness of nature
The birds –
They don’t nest their home around anymore
They have spread their wings
To fly away
I hear their chants, at far
And once in a while
See them perching
On electric wires –
Proud to be free
Proud of their wings.
In most houses it’s summer too –
The bells are about to ring happy ever afters –
Holidays, end year
And Christmas too
While others –
Still house winter in their heart.
1st December came in
I woke up knowingly
That there is nothing anymore to be saved
I go on with my life
Busy building my dream
So that my next winter
Might look like the summer
Of this 1st December day.

I am an independent creative author (self-taught autodidact), who lives on the island of Mauritius. I've self-published a metaphysical science-fiction novel (Darcocyte); and I am currently writing a poetry book. I am a very passionate person, who loves reading beautiful sentences; I am also a great cinephile, music lover, and a lover of everything aesthetic and artistic. For my personal creative leisure, I love to craft, blog & write poetry, and this, all the while taking care of my children.
