Summer vacations- of Gen Alpha

We journeyed in sweltering heat

As the AC failed to keep its promise.

The sudden darkening of the sky

Materialised relief and a Kalbaishakhi

Sweeping the road ahead

Dropping sweet ripened mangoes.

Mammoth drops fell unsteadily

On and off on the windshield

The youngest pointed out in glee

As we drove across a bridge –

Look at the wet riverbed, mom

What a pleasant sight it is!
