Everyone knows what a winter’s day
looks and feels like.
Even if they have never experienced one.
And not just any winter’s day either,
but the quintessential winter’s day!
The same probably holds true with quintessential days
for any of the other three seasons too,
even though they are so rare in this country.
Most days are, by comparison,
an unsatisfactory mix
of all the four seasons together.
So, how come we recognise them,
in their singularity,
and can relate to them so readily?
Seasonality is an unseen notion.
Whenever we colour our days in this way,
we utilise a painting box of the beyond.
