a poem by Raghunandan Ram, India

Ah! Oh! Uh!
How cruel is June?
Nature’s unkind zoom
With Sun burns,
Warm waves,
Sweating & discomforts;
Growing prickles,
Lowering of water levels,
Farmers expecting rains,
Workers fearful of strokes,
Children caged in blocks,
& an echo of
Ah! Oh! Uh!
Heat! Hot! Horrid!
Continue no more;
But we can’t stop waiting
For sellers on door
For mangos & litchis
Watermelon & blackberries
And to please kids & kins
With flavours & juices,
Milkshake & slices.
The season of sweetness
And bitterness,
The season of ripeness
And endurance,
Signals vapourisation
& forthcoming of monsoon,
Hey! Ho! Hurrah!
With no
Ah! Oh! Uh!
Bitterness in sweetness
& sweetness in bitterness
June the month of
Labour pain of resurgence,
Registration of hope & life,
Come next year
But in mildness
And graciousness
When we will be moving
Towards de-carbonization.
