Iridium

Translucent nourishment

Cascades gently from the sky

Bringing new life

To what was seemingly on its death bed

 

The air cools as iridium gray

Covers the horizon

As the air cools, it thickens

Breathing is more of a challenge than normal

 

As sweet as it is brief

The “cool” front passes

We return to normality

The blast furnace is back in business

  1. Oh how I remember those “lovely summer days” in the metroplex! Nobody ever hears me complain about being up north in the summer, only in the winter. Your description is perfect!

    1. Thank you! I used to love summers here, then after a few years of what I considered defrosting, I realized that I wads miserably hot & all I wanted in the world was a cloud. Its not that the heat itself is so bad, it is the combination of the heat & the death ray strength of the sun 🙂

      1. Amen to that Chris! Now I am up north in WI and I have to laugh because I am complaining about the weathrr today being near 90! Isnt that Spring in Texas?

  2. Pretty much, we have a “cold spell” right now, its been raining gently since Sunday (it is wonderful), we’re not supposed to top 100 until next Tuesday – cold spell – pah 😉

  3. Rain in July in Texas—nothing short of a miracle isn’t it? Only ever saw that once. I seem to remember it was very very dry in July and August. Enjoy your “cold spell” and watch out for those “blue northers”! 🙂 .

  4. “Translucent nourishment” I love that! Especially as it is raining out right now!! This was excellent.
