Another August!

Another August comes by 

Monsoon pellets dirty green lagoons, 

Thatched roofs leak,  

Rainwater plops on hot, reddish-brown Kattan Chaya

An organic excess invades the secluded south Goan beaches

The horizon is hardly distinct— the sun sets and rises from a mistiness

August brings about green, profuse beginnings,

Like the rains

A month for new roles, a month to reset dreams

A month that gently pokes us to remember—

Our very own trysts with destiny

Our past can never be us, 

Yet, the supple, awkward years colour us,

Like the mossiness of a heavily green temple tank

Salute it,

Embrace it,

Plunge in…
