Still Summer

Here it comes, mercury rising

The warning is over

The attack has begun

The furnace arrives

On a tidal wave of sweat

 

It is strange how things evolve

What was once a welcome change

A comfort, the promise of new

Is now a test of endurance

Survival

 

Following 25 years of damp cold

A great thaw ensued

Now, no longer, now overdone

Yet the annual temptation to leave

Passes almost as suddenly as it arrives

 

 

I actually wrote most of this at the beginning of summer, then it was relatively pleasant for a few weeks & I decided not to post it. Yet here we are in September, still in the high 90s (mid 30s C) & despite it being a “very mild summer”, it is still bloody hot & I am so over it. I want to go outside during the day & not have to immediately take a shower! I don’t miss England all that often, but when I do, it is usually in the middle of a Texas summer 🙂

  1. I love the warmth. I would take it any day over the cold. Brazil has definitely become my home. I don’t even consider moving back to Canada. Brrrrrrrr.

    1. I still enjoy the heat, August gets to me though. I think it’s more the strength of the sun that the heat, some days I wish I could buy a cloud! On the bright side we have a good 3 months of glorious weather coming up 🙂

  2. We’re finally starting to enjoy a type of summer here in the mid-west. But – that just means that autumn is just around the corner.
    Keep cool.
