I can smell the heat of the day

I can smell the heat of the day
The off gassing of materials
The decomposition of grass
I smell the earth drying in the bake
         of this southern sky.

After many weeks of thunderstorms it felt like summer had been postponed.  Summer is here and we are in the 90's.

....

summer heat
pulsing in these veins
searing and revolting
emanating from the keyboard

radiating within
this hopeless romantic
charring the barren heart

but hope will suffice

the summer heat in her eyes..

it's gettin' hot in herr

Scorching heat, sweat pours
GitacharYa VedaLa

Scorching heat, sweat pours
Vicious winds, couldn't tame it
Sweat river. It's summer. Whoa!

Old poem, but now, it's summer here

why rot in hell
when you can rot anywhere

save the heat
for warming your bones
after the flesh has decayed

I missed most of this summer's heat

It's a relief to know
That on my trip north
I missed most of this summer's heat

But I'm still quite hot
And it's really not
Anywhere near the hottest it'll reach.

in the Southern heat.  sweat starts pouring until your
eunsung aka Silas

the air is so thick that even your thoughts melt away
in the Southern heat.  sweat starts pouring until your
clothes start clinging to you like an unwanted lover.  heat and sweat seperates the true Southerners from the wannabe's,
who don't truly love a place even when it's too damn hot.

Noonday sun beats down,
showing mercy to no one.
Shimmering pavement.

The heat is coming down

The heat is coming down
Like a car playing chicken
Except all you can do is stand there and get hit
Over and over again
Until it merges with your skin, your body
It stays with you like a second skin
Like some sort of sickness
Water is your pain reliever
Air conditioning is but a temporary cure
Because as soon as you leave
The heat is right outside
Waiting for you.

I can't stand this heat!
Jordan Dean Ezekude

Ouch!
It's hot!
Ever so boiling!
Too hot to handle!
I can't stand this heat!
I need a drink of water!
Something nice and cool!
Something ice cold!
A drink!
Anything!

This is a short poem I wrote just before last week's Creative Writing session started.

Savored the Mystery and remembered the Heat.
Proxima Centariy

How I do,
Long for the inspiration your eyes gave.
For that moment in time we’d held close breaths.
Hands,
Trembling fingers.
Clashing flesh, like teeth.
I was yours in the hours of another day.
Savored the Mystery and remembered the Heat.
We lay together no more.
