A Summer's Breeze in Ibaraki, Japan
The cold sheer windchills from the mountain range in Hyogo were disrupted abruptly by humid rays of sun here in Ibaraki.
Summer, it feels.
The first few weeks of summer were undoubtedly, within expectations.
Bugs and spiders became daily visitors at my workplace. Flies and mosquitoes, a seasonal resident in my apartment.
Being a miser in my monthly expenses, I thought long if we could keep up with the "no AC" routine. Nights felt longer through the humidity and scorching glares.
My first summer in Japan, it seems.
"I'm from the tropical lands, where it's summer all year round, this should be no hassle"
And yet, the humidity found its way to my mind, numbing any initial assumption.
Pit Pat Pit Pat
A scene from "Weathering with you" replays before my eyes.
I spoke too soon, it feels.
Within a few seconds, the rain washed the humidity and sun glares away.
Gloomy cloudy skies filled the scene. A scene that continued for days, and then weeks.
A chilly relief, runs down my spine.
Yet, what is this feeling?
A scene right from Makoto Shinkai's infamous film?
A summer's breeze, I pen down.
The cool breeze during the humid summer seasons, brings warmth within my snuggles with my bed.
