A month of May in Mauritius A month of May in Mauritius The seasonal mood meander Midst the wintery cold days As the tropical heat mild And the fiery sun migrates. At night leaves sing merrily As gushes of winds murmur While the muse of our lagoon Speaks quietly to the poet Of lugubrous morbid mysteries And shivering moist sceneries Of these murky days ahead. In some places, musty smell Mingles into damp corners Whereupon these misty days Warm and mush clothes frays Their way into the wardrobe. -Eiravel-
Yep, winter is here in Mauritius, thus the inspiration behind this little poem. The month of May is particular to me, for my sons were born during this month. Also, as here we celebrate Mother’s Day at the end of this month, I am busy making e-cards to celebrate this event, which for me is the best creative leisure that keeps me rooted into that creative realm. Thus, I do hope that the month of May turns out to be very productive for you, and that the change of season inspires you till the bottom of your core.
