HOT! Out there. Nearly 100 degrees.
Image (c) 2006, Karla Dorman.
The sun, white hot, burns
the blue from the sky,
until all is red
with fire. Hurts to breathe.
a scythe scraping lungs
dry ... as void as the
air, outside. And it's
just getting started,
the heat of summer.
(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (5/19)

|I do so love the hot summers. Here is sometimes in the 90's. I can dress accordingly and stay cool. I do not like to lay out in the sun, not a sun worshipper like my daugher is. I cannot wait til summer but it is only May here and mostly cooler than usual right now for the season. Good write.|

|What a great picture and write, your imagery is powerful and brings the write to life! I could almost feel the heat as I read the poem. Strange how the weather can be so different at the same time. It is cooler than usual here, I had to light the fireplace a few minutes ago...I never know how to dress! Enjoyed this my friend!

BTW, was down at Babe's yesterday, friends took me, and in a hurry to get home (after sittin' and eatin' for 2 hours :o) That's the BEST dad-gum fried chicken in the South! Or the whole of the U..S.ofA!!
