Summer Threatens

Summer slowly threatens to move in

However, not just yet

Mother Nature grants as a brief reprieve

For now we enjoy the end of another glorious spring


Comfort can still be found in the shade

The breeze is still somewhat refreshing

The sky maintains the presence of small clouds

Laughter can still be heard as children play

But the sky threatens to swallow the clouds

As the mercury menaces we know

The dog days will soon be upon us

The air will thicken as muscles wilt while we sweat walking to the mail box

Then we will know that the dreaded summer is finally here
