1st December

the light of the sun in the sky and trees
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 married, and I have two sons. I live on the island of Mauritius. I love to write fiction, poems, and blog. I've self-published a science-fiction book (Darcocyte). I aspire to make a living through my creative writings. I am a very passionate person. I love the sublime and the strange; and I am also interested in all types and forms of art that pleases my mind.
