as white ,fluffy clouds
stack up high in the sky.
The air is a moist, sticky stew of humidity,
and everyone has slowed down
on this hot summer day.
The cat lies in a patch of shade and dozes fitfully.
Baby frets as she naps on damp sheets,
Mother rocks and fans herself~
as she dreads the thought of standing over a hot stove,
Daddy scans the sky anxiously for a rain cloud,
as the grass slowly burns on the lawn.
