Who wins this summer? - A Haiku.


Drop of sweat trickles
We play hide and seek with sun
Who wins this summer?

Indoor introverts
Not much change felt except heat
Just draw the curtains

Outdoor extroverts
More fun, more laugh, more sunscreen
Climate change man? Nay!



As Summer hits the place, it's time for candies, juices... hats, umbrellas, sunglasses, sunscreen...! But how does the change of climate ever affect man? Just some discomfort and a little whining. It never will succeed in changing the nature of a person, will it? Indoor loving person will still be indoors. The only change is probably he 'll increase the speed of the fan, or click away the remote to decrease the temperature of the air-conditioner. And the outdoor loving people? Does summer stop them from going out? Nah! They'll still make the best of the situation by hitting the waterfalls, pool parties, the beaches.. A pair of sunglasses and some extra sunscreen and they're game! Neither can winter get a person out, nor can summer keep people indoors! Nature of a man is not really subject to change. If they want to do something, they do it no matter what.



This Haiku is written for The Heights of Haiku - April 2012. The prompt for today is 'SUMMER'.
