The Gods of Summer

I looked through all my words and oh, how absurd I couldn't find a single one about Summertime! The time of Amon and Ai is coming you know, even though I have mixed feelings about skin peelings and heat to take a breath away. Summertime is for children to splash and run in bare feet. In the fall/winter of my life I creak about in bones that welcome warmth but not heat. Horae turns the seasons (without my permission) while in Spring I long to stay, so I wait in awe of the god's decision to roast me come what may. For John Heck's Summertime Contest
