Day 8 – Lemonade

Hello all! National Poetry Writing Month is on! It’s the time when poets from all around the world exhibit their love for the art of poetry writing. ๐Ÿ˜„

My poem for Day 8 is titled Lemonade. I’ve been fantasizing about drinking chilled lemonade since the last few days, but sadly, my ill health doesn’t allow me to do so. Oh, that tangy tasty flavour that makes the tongue perform a tango! I want ittttt! ๐Ÿ˜ฟ This poem is my dedication to that wild, carefree drink I’ve lost my heart to.


Freshly plucked lemons,
Squeezed into a cup,
A pinch of rock salt,
Sprinkled on the top.
A dash of mint leaves,
Adds edge to the taste,
Frost-bitten ice cubes,
Dive down in haste.
Sugar syrup poured,
Brings a balanced flavour,
Add a glass of chilled water,
And lemon slices to savour.
Gaze down at this masterpiece,
And twist, and twirl and spin,
A tangy tornado of flavours,
Passionately invites you in!


So, what drinks/dishes are you guys dying for during this lockdown period? And how’s it been so far? I’m loving this vacation, haha. We normally never get such indefinite amount of free time and now it’s finally here. So, why worry! Explore all your hobbies, sleep as much as you want, watch movies, play games, socialize with friends and family. Staying at home is the most natural thing for me! Do let me know your views and experiences in the comments section below. ๐Ÿค
