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.

By Eiravel

I live somewhere in the South West of the Island of Mauritius. I am a mother, a spouse, a great life enthusiast. I love writing fiction, poems, and blog; I love listening to music, watch movies, read good books; also, love the sublime and the strange; and I am also interested in all types and forms of art that pleases my mind. I've even self-published a science-fiction book (Darcocyte), and I aspire to make a living through my writings.
