I See Summer

I remember a little purple room.
I see a little ray of sunlight streaming like a ribbon through the blurry panes of the old wooden window
I see a sequinned curtain catching the light, throwing billion little rainbows on the wall by its side
I hear the distant sound of a koel cooing post her afternoon nap
I see a lavender wall plastered with old photographs, unmindful sketches, random written phrases & Harry Potter cut-outs
I see a curved terrace, a myriad of chunris, tied to a cane swing, billowing in the wind
I hear Euphoria singing Maeri
I feel the warm noon breeze tugging at the ferns in a pot
I hear the girly giggles & laughter of friends tumbling over a pillow fight
I smell musty books as I lean closer to the wooden shelf
I smell sweet tea laced with ginger & cardamom
I hear shrieks & shouts of a game of gully cricket
I see a 15 yr old me on a pink cycle – daddy’s birthday gift. I feel sweat, tired from a ride
I smell fresh baked nankatais as the neighbourhood bakery opens
I see twilight
I see a summer from the memory book, clumsy & innocent
