JULY ONE/the sunday whirl wordle #358 –poets united poets pantry


July one
More hot days expected
Birds in flight over the mesa
The cycle of days never ending

Even the gods are naked
Seek a shady place
Remember the spirit of winter
Take nothing for granted

Walk the spiral
Return to the heart
Remember home
And the lessons learned

Passions hot
Along with the hot days of summer
The humming birds are not here
There is no flitting in the garden
Will they ever return

The words come quietly
Perspiration trickles down your cheeks
The watermelon cools in tub of ice
It is the essence of summer
