Amaan Ahmad, Poetry 2020 Longlist

Summer Re-visited

Morning noisy with the buzzing houseflies

Noon burning with the scorching sun

Evening wet with the walk to ponds

Night dreamy with the sky full of stars

Clothes dirty with the stains of joy

Stomach full with the sweetest mangoes

Courtyard full with the noises of children playing

Mouths full with the cold ice cream

Mind relaxed without worries

Summers well spent without air conditioners

That was childhood without any filters.
