The Romance of Seasons

The Romance of Seasons

4 mins
796


I was just enjoying the chilly winter

The cold shivers in my tummy after lunch and dinner

The few minutes of soothing warmth of the winter sun

That I looked forward to during my service

The very comfortable naps that always yearned then

Which I can now take 

Cuddling myself inside a warm blanket

And reading an interesting book


But what happened?

Winter was so short

I did not realise how summer stealthily took over

Driving away the chilly winds

Angering the sun, who now has started scorching

The occasional breeze raises all the dust

Yes, my mango tree is full of blooms


I do wait for the feast of colours

That the spring is to bring all over

Mother earth is getting ready to bear the heat

With a sheet of foliage

This will be followed by the cool rains

And the winter will usher once again, maybe for a shorter while

But the seasons of my life come but only once

Just as I was enjoying my childhood

The carefree days of fun and frolic


Youth took me over which I welcomed with full excitement

Everything around me seemed beautiful-

The trees, the flowers, the sky, the earth, the rains and even the scorching sun

As my heart was filled with romance

My first love which haunts me till today

Everybody around me seemed angels

And I thought all my dreams of my future would come true

What could hinder?  


I had not tasted the power of fate till then

I could not imagine that the person who wove those dreams for me

Was after all another human being and could break my heart mercilessly

My winter and early summer gone 

My husband entered my life to bring in spring

My little children made my spring festive and colourful

Just as I put off my winter pains and started enjoying my new spring

With full enthusiasm, vigour and interest


The rainfall of my life started

The early rains soothed my scorched summer soul

With my children growing up to responsible adults

Achieving accolades in their fields

But the rains continued and started washing away my secure nest

My children flew away 

And where did all the leaves and flowers on the trees go away?


The colours are gone,

The once soothing cool breeze now hurts

Where has that romance vanished?

The same sky, the same earth now look barren and uninteresting

The last season has arrived

I await the mysterious end

Nothing seems romantic, nothing seems exciting



My mind goes back and back again to the past

And I yearn for another cycle of all those beautiful seasons

Maybe I could do better this time!

And savour every precious moment consciously

For I now know how short-lived each moment is!
