A dream of summers to come

by Dianita

Summer is such a bittersweet season. This year it has proven to be very challenging and not only because of the scorching Sun. It inevitably brings memories of tremendously hot Summers back at home.

Sunflowers are joyful though. I’ve never seen so many sunflowers in my life! I’ve found them to be comforting, next to busy roads in empty lots just existing. Happy to be receiving the sunlight and the warmth. But even with them, sometimes I just wish Summers brought happier things. This year’s challenges have left many of us feeling like we don’t have the strength to go on. Frustrated that not even the most beautiful sunflower can bring a smile to our faces.

We sit and wait. Sometimes we get angry and we change. We fight and sometimes, the ones who fight the hardest can also feel the weight of the scorching Sun. It drains, it dries. It evaporates hope. We dream and hope that next Summer will be better. Hugging sunflowers in our minds. We try to steal their joy, the strength in the strangest and historical conditions. We hope next time we can watch the new sunflowers under a kinder light.
