The View From My Window
Oh look, here they are.. Finally they’ve arrived. What took them so long, I wonder?
I’ve been waiting for a year now, but it has been worth it. Because they look so beautiful. So juicy. Yummy!
The fragrance is heavenly, spicy and sweet. It wafts into the house on a particularly hot day, beckoning us to come out and see the beautiful ripe fruits, hanging there proud in their full glory. The ‘King of Fruits’ is such an apt title.
Wait till mom sees them. She’s going to totally flip. All those plans about mouth-watering recipes will finally take shape.
Come on what are we waiting for? Lets get them down. I know they’re dying to be plucked. I can see the yearning quite clearly, on their fresh, shiny, lush, green bodies. The tree is right outside my terrace. All I have to do is extend my hand to touch them. Exciting, isn’t it?
This is the best part about summer. Brings back memories of childhood when we kids, during the holidays, would participate in mango-plucking competitions, and later have a mango party. It was so much fun!
“Yes, yes I am coming.”
The mangoes are calling, can’t neglect them any longer. So bye!
