Summer Heat

Heat builds

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.
