Summer starting


Monotony of solitariness
Broken only by hovering flies.
Tired fan drones on.
Heaviness hangs
In those burning gusts
Of warm noon winds.
Spring has flown swiftly by
Bringing lazy dog days of summer.

  5. You must live somewhere warmer than me; spring is going strong in the 50's and 60's here in Colorado!

    Stopping by to wish you good luck with the A-to-Z Challenge!
