GloPoWriMo 2019: 25/30

Today’s prompt is this:

  • Is specific to a season
  • Uses imagery that relates to all five senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell)
  • Includes a rhetorical question, (like Keats’ “where are the songs of spring?”)

Why are these prompts so complicated?

Summer

Salty water lines my brow,
My sight is hazy,
All I can hear is the whirring of a cooler,
I’m definitely going crazy.

Everything smells sweaty,
Sticking to the skin,
The clothes I’m wearing are wet,
I’m crying within.

I cannot wait to see cooler climes,
Although I love summer so,
I wish I was close to a water body, or in Bangalore,
I’m wondering, where did winter go?

 

Let me know what you think!
