Summer Days (#4)- Early Solstice

 

 

The sun bears down today

Not cruelly but firm

Insistent

Patient

Winning our grudging recognition

Acceptance of its force

 

 

Car windows go up

Air conditioners on

Jackets come off

Buttons undone

Joggers walk

Runners jog

Walkers smile in their malls

 

 

Children play and play

Barely noticing the sting

Of the sweat

They wipe from their eyes
