SUMMERS WITH PAATI (GRANDMA)

Summer is Paati time!

Sweeping saris-Swish! Swish!
Sizzling spices-Crackle! Pop!
Singing strings-SaRi GaMa!
Jingling jewelry-Tinkle! Tinkle!

Alas…
Nights start to cool.
Paati leaves.

No time with Paati!

Waiting is hard.
Return soon, Paati!

Leaves fall.
Snowflakes flutter.
Jasmines bloom.

Finally
Summer colors.
I cartwheel in joy.

Summer is Paati time!
