Withering Summer

With prickly sweat
Trickling down the spine
Finding respite
Under the 'Neem tree'*
Quenching thirst
With sweet cool lime
And syrupy watermelon
Oozing nectar from
Green coconut
Tastes like Heaven
Juicy mangoes tease
Oh! I want some more please 

Scorching sun
Reverberates its heat
Let the ‘Matka Kulfi’** melt
And beat the sizzling heat
Sun Flowers stand valiantly
Shinning in the sun
Summers are here
Now waiting for the Rain.

*'Neem Tree' Azadirachta indica, also known as Neem, Nimtree, and Indian Lilac is a tree in the mahogany family Meliaceae.

** 'Matka Kulfi' it is a kind of creamy milky Ice cream set in earthen pots. It's a delight in summers as fresh earthen pot's aroma mixes with delicious cool Ice Cream.
