C’mon let’s plunge again, like we did last summer.
Daily Prompt: Turn, Turn, Turn

For many of us, winter is blooming into spring, or fall hardening into winter. Which season do you most look forward to?
The scorching heat of the sun signifies it’s officially summer here in the tropical island, Philippines. From the word itself – tropical, means you can never expect for the winter, spring or fall to come. Only two seasons all throughout the year, the hot summer from March to June and the long cold season from July to February.
After 8 months of experiencing slight to heavy downpour of rain between June to February, we are now experiencing a totally hot weather. It rains occasionally, but would only last for minutes, unable to recuperate the body from intense heat. And then eventually, warm blow of air began to envelop the whole atmosphere again. Woah! It’s getting hot in here! 😉
And it’s not only me, who had this getting-hot-in-here feeling, I guess so, because I noticed from time to time I visit my Facebook account, several shout outs about the longing for the super cold rain and complaining of the uneasy feeling echoed and bombarded in the webpage.
It’s like so ironic because when cold season comes, people long for the warmth of the summer sun. And now that summer sun had stood still its way again, myriad longed for the cold winter wind and the tangy touch of rain like frogs in an arid pond. And I’m one of those ironic fools praying savagely and looking forward for the kiss of rainy season.
This extremely hot sensation reckons me to take gulps of ice-cold drinking water every now and then. And drives me to this notion of hopping in to some nearby public beach or to an affordable resort and soak in their refreshing pool. Ready to take another plunge again like what we did last summer.
