Poem: Summer-Tide

Every day the summer season is turning more and more challenging to face. April poetry celebration is my summer solace. For the day 13th, I thought to pen down the summer-tide. Today's poems form a chain of free haiku where the last verse of earlier haiku forms the first verse of the next haiku. Also, the last verse of the last haiku forms the first verse of the first haiku converting it into a day-night summer cycle. 

I chose to write about the troubling summer to make summer time enjoyable. If we change our perception towards difficult times, we can definitely find something to celebrate.  

Predawn wind takes the mind
In the deep slumber, the alarm awakens
The eyes to meet a bright new day.

~~~o~~~

The eyes to meet a bright new day,
The sunrise opens the doors to opportunities;
Race against the time begins.

~~~o~~~

Race against the time begins,
Vigorous morning meets the hot noon,
The hot afternoon decelerates the work.

~~~o~~~

Hot afternoon decelerates the work,
Rising temperature surges the restlessness,
Evening comes with a relieving breeze.

~~~o~~~

Evening comes with a relieving breeze,
Smiling poems prospers to meet you, but
Concrete buildings bring trouble releasing heat in the night.

~~~o~~~

Concrete buildings bring trouble releasing heat in the night,
Restlessness annoys again sleepy eyes,

Predawn wind takes the mind.
