enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

weeds grow
once the evening
breezes (in) 
begin (s)
it's easier to believe
tomorrow's heat
will not be so 


  1. ... as a newfoundlander shipwrecked in ontario, and beginning my 21st summer in the icky sticky heat of niagara summer, give me a north atlantic wind off an ice berg any day...

  2. your discription sounds a lot like Florida.

  3. "Dog breath weather" is my sister's term for this humid summer stuff.

    At least the heat hasn't melted your brain, like I fear it has mine. Your rhymes are nice here.

  4. Sounds like the plain Plains the last few days. Not a hint of a breeze. Stifling.

  5. punch-- i've only been to Florida once and it was in november....so i likely have missed its splendour.. it seems there are resonances with my own locale
    intelliwench-- thanks for the kind comment; dog breath weather is a great line !!
    jadedj-- my Plains experiences are also limited, but it sounds like you can relate to the last few days here in my little piece of humid hell.

    thanks, y'all.... nice to see that i am not alone in my humid misery :)

  6. Sitting here, feeling too hot in the increasing humidity. Nice shape to this.

  7. madame -- thanks for the visit and the comment on the shape of the poem. i experiment with it from time to time (my son encourages me to be adventurous with how poetry and space and shape relate to each other.... )
    and on the humidity thing.... wow, it's an epidemic!
