‘S earing is believing’,  so to say
U mbrella-shaded or not, all is hay.
M uggy months with their max-it-out man hours,
M ay being the maddest in gods' asylum.
E ven  the other three  and those scrimpy
R ains  tend to simmer a la summer.

S howering and changing atleast twice a day
U nwinding at night outside in kindly breeze
Mangoes, local palm's gifts and other fruits
M ade at home drinks and coconut juice make
E ndothermic bodies that sink extra heat
R efreshed and trim,  it is COOL summer times.

Note:-  Second stanza (acrostic) added subsequently bc the poem would not look complete  without it.

    Jag, I actually think it also works well standing alone that first stanza since it is all about the negatives of summer. but it looks well balanced with the second stanza. Very nicely done. I think summers are worse for you than for me. Utah has dry heat. It can make you feel like you are in an oven, but when you get used to it, it is better than humid areas!

    Acrostically reflecting on your last summer. Sounds a bit uncomfortable to say the least! Nice to read your work as always! :)

    so unique and original, this one just had to be yours, jaggy! this underwent many revisions, each time I read it it had changed slightly! I like "searing is believing", I like the alliteration and "scrimpy rains", and of course, the word play with simmer/summer - you chose my favourite season! congrats on your win in my contest, sweetie xoxo

    clever acrostic - I especially love the line 'searing is believing' - I am pleased we don't have searing heat here in the UK. Good luck in the contest. Hugs jan xx
