Mangoes…

I travel back in time,
to summer vacations;
two full months of fun
after examinations.
The smell of mangoes
in the hot summer air,
and they’d be there
sliced, ready to eat,
the expected treat,
my sister and I loved.
Some such moments,
often, I wish for more;
it makes me wonder,
if future has it in store.

They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
