Hot out there ...

Image (c) 2006, Karla Dorman

... smothering blanket heat,
sweat.  Blooming in the

to moisten all.  And then
August to look forward to:
Summer.  Never.  Ends ....

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (7/21)

almost like 2 haiku. Your great at short. And how true, though summer does eventually end, we are never far away from its most intense effects living in the sub-tropics. And now y'all in Texas will have a hurricane approaching the coast by tomorrow more than likely. Hope it doesn't hit further up where you are...HELLO DOLLY!
