I heard the
Koel singing its soulful song early this morning!
I felt it
was praising the Lord after munching summer fruits on the tree.
sun displays hope, joy, and long days of work and action!
fast our clothes dry in summer!
come watermelons and oranges and coconuts to quench our thirst!
No need to
pop up fizzy drinks and get a big hole made in your pocket!
not gloomy, as some people complain!
It’s the “cooling off” season!
leaves fall to the ground, it’s like a floating magic carpet flying out from a
winter’s misty mornings and quiet, dark evenings
down to reflect on what we’ve been doing with our lives all the year through.
the chill may make my hands turn blue
But I know
it’s not forever, and soon it vanishes without leaving a clue!
brings fresh flowers, a feast for our eyes.
yellow, orange, red, purple blossoms—God’s garden gets the first prize!
tea when it rains!
No need to
make ‘real’ tea when guests arrive
up your kettle and fill lots of rain water and serve with fresh mud pies!
Achhoo! Oh dear, sometimes a cold, sometimes a sneeze!
deliciously cool mud-scented breeze!
made by God,
their own particular beauty,
celebrate and thank Him for these many blessings!
