The air is still, holding it’s breath, waiting
for the heat to pass.
The dogs loll about on the concrete patio,
the bamboo floor under the ceiling fan, no one
wants to move about including me.
I will be headed for a swim in the pond later,
but for now in the heat of the day, my basement
walkout studio provides cool relief and time
to play on the computer once more.
Good fortune to all those on vacation
this week in New England, the ocean
is warm but still refreshing and the flies
have gone. Blueberry season is in full swing
and the corn is sweet and tender.
