Sunshine and heat is everywhere

The burning in our lungs caused by hot air

Summer bears down with no end in sight

Summer bears down with all her might


To escape in the shade and lay down for a while

And watch summer unfold and do so in style

Activity subdued to a leisurely pace

We continue to abide in this infernal place


It’s ice cream and cold drinks at the ready

To hold summers grip firm and steady

The night brings relief if but for a short time

Then back to the heat with no reason or rhyme


We enjoy this season with exuberant  displays

We enjoy this season basking in the suns rays

It’s time to spend with our toys and devices

It’s time to partake in our trivial  vices

Author Notes

This piece is for those of us about to endure a long hot summer
