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 lugubrious morbid mysteries And shivering moist sceneries About these murky days ahead. In some places, musty smell Mingles into damp corners Whereupon these misty days Warm and thick clothes make Their way inside of the wardrobe. -Eiravel-
Yep, winter is here in Mauritius, thus the inspiration behind this little poem. May is a very significant month for 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 is a creative leisure that keeps me deeply rooted in the creative realm. Thus, I do hope that the month of May turns out to be very productive for you, and that this seasonal change will inspire your inner core.
