Summer 2010

Heat days arrive with cloudless skies.
A sultry haze hangs evoking earthquake tales.

Sticky twilight mauve moves
another day, another month
another year passing
as sporadic fireworks explode
weeks before the celebration
of another date.

Dog dead days
bestir record keepers
to pronounce and announce
what few brain cells
have already registered ...
it is hotter than hot.

    You paint a fine picture of the way it is here today, too. Thanks for your comments, Sue. My birth month is November and the day is the 26th. I'll give you hint about the year - it was the same as the UFO crash in Roswell, NM.
