Indian Summer

By Beulin Ashika

@beulinashika

she reminded me of an Indian summer

the way she was fierce and subtle

the way her smiles brought warmth and life

the way she loved with a voracity that was almost childlike in its eagerness

like the sun that wouldn’t leave for she loved the world too much

like the rains that keep coming back to savor the moment of a simple kiss, a touch

she reminded me of an Indian summer

the way she knew her home was the wild

like the birds that were free

like the heart of a child
