Not Fall Yet

Cool breeze sign of fall
Sweltering afternoon heat
Nature changed her mind

Hot

It’s hot as hell out here.
Someone lit a fire under this sphere.
I’m boiling like a lobstah in a paht.
Man, that’s hot!

Sunday

It was bright and overcast at the same time. The sun dominated half of the sky, while the other half yielded to dark threatening clouds. It was still hot and bright, enough so that I was cheering on the clouds and wishing for rain. It never came, but it was a beautiful day regardless of my momentary discomfort. I was secretly grateful for it because I know winter is coming to New England sooner than I appreciate.

Raindrops

Afternoon showers
Soak the sizzling hot sidewalk
Glistening drops cool
