HOT WINDS BLOW

The morning cool

Temperature just right

As the day travels

The temperature rises

Hot winds blow

 

Within the dwelling

The sound of voices rise

Anger flies from the windows

The temperature rises

Hot winds blow

 

Your eyes aflame

Hot under the collar

Point your finger

Just for emphasis

The temperature rises

Hot winds blow

 

Remove your clothes

Nothing touches your skin

Sweat runs down your belly

The temperature rises

Hot winds blow

 

The sun sets

End of day

Twilight in the desert

The Temperature drops

Hot winds sleep

Cool winds take over

    The Temperature drops
    Hot winds sleep
    Cool winds take over

    Peace and happiness takes over finally (after having gone through the trying moments)

  2. And when the night has come

    Put the clothes back on

    All are happy that they survived

    Happy and dry

    Smelling good

    Thankful and just in

    Time for

    Sleep

    That was my interpretation, sadness and discomfort should not last, all should have a happy ending. Thank you for the nice read.

      Why, aren’t you the little” fairy-teller of tales,” sadly, in life, not all tales have a happy ending. Perhaps, the image of the wheel is best, happiness doesn’t last, and neither does sadness…each in its own time. One after the other, cycles. Love you response to my poem. Come back soon.
