Cold Summer

It is the season of summer, yet it is cold;
Water seeps through my sneakers, and touches my toes.

The cold kisses on my bare hands,
I first thought was light rain was actually snow.

Longing to see the colours of summer,
I’m still searching for the lost rainbow

It is May; it is supposed summer here in Canada. But this morning, I stepped out and felt chilly, and ended up going back inside to grab my winter jacket. It rained yesterday, so the ground was wet. As I waited for my bus, I thought the ‘raindrops’ looked rather… light. And I woke-up from my daydreaming to realize it was actually snowing!

    That pretty muchs sums things up for the people here, too. We long for summer. A beautiful poem and artwork, Mui-Ling.

  • Glad you like this Lori; thank you very much. Has it is snowed over there too lately? It did seem spring was coming pretty slowly for us compared to most places…

    We have had snow and comp temps over the past week. It is warmer this week but still on the chilly side. I need some sunshine. ♥

  • Me too. A marathon here was planned for this past weekend that it rained. But the big event still commenced!

    I wrote this piece yesterday, and it rained again today.
    I wore my winter jacket, even though it is May.

    It’s past midnight; I had to work late.
    But I can’t fall asleep because I just ate…
