Between Summer and Autumn 

Between Summer and Autumn 

Autumn will come and take over
the course of nature
very soon

Summer is happily packing up
for a long vacation
next year.

Only a couple days left.
He will fly to somewhere in the Caribbean
lay his back on a beach chair,
hold in his hand a glass of “Singani”,
enjoy every sip under bright sunshine,
while he’ll gently close his eyes
listening to the sound of crashing waves

too bad
I am stuck here
to sweep messy leaves in my backyard.

I wish if I were one the four seasons
to do a three-month work
then take six months off

Thao Chuong Tran Quoc Viet
