::: hot heat of summer

(polaroid 600 images of backyard sun)

oh, summer sun.

oh, hot heat of summer.

blaze lovely.

you burn the life into me.

and i cannot get enough.

even when i feel you heavy in the air.

hanging damp on my limbs.

i want to soak in your rays.

wade in your shine.

dance in your fire.

as beads of sweat drip down my back.

across my nose.

behind my ear.

i relish.

you warm me.

you darken my skin.

you heat my very soul.

& make me whole again.


  1. So beautifully said! I feel exactly the same way and have several times now opened the windows to let the summer in!

  2. LOVE. you read my summer mind. and quite poetically.
