its that time of year


its that time of year
when tender mangoes
hang in clumps
in the mango groves.

and the fragrance
of the blossoms
hangs heavy in the air.

the plaintive cries
of the koyal and the mynah
rent the air
as they are driven
by nature to seek their mates.

its that time of year
when all of nature
waits with bated breath
with me as i wait
for a sign from my beloved.

a sign that will
fulfill me
make me complete
and rejoice my second life.

therein lies
my liberation.

Beautiful, we always associate spring with flowers, birds and clear sky, but u started it with my fav fruit. Quite unique and lovely.

@brocasarea : you get free mangoes from your native? you lucky guy... here's wishing you get an extra 'peti' this year :)

@shruti : mangoes are irresistible for the young and the old. don't you feel like plucking them when you see the bunches on the trees?

@misti : thanks... spring is always mango blossoms for me and summer is the golden king of fruits! don't you agree? :)
