Hot, Hot, Hot

Never has the summer been

As hot as it is now,

If you go out it’ll hurt your skin

It might even scorch your brow.

Heat index at 50 degrees

That’s Celsius and not Fahrenheit,

But still wouldn’t you agree

That, that is hot alright!

Can’t get to the beach to cool off

Or to the mall for some cold air,

If only we could get out, just blastoff

And feel the wind in our hair.

I fix instead some cold drink

One glass, then two, then three

This will do for now, I think

Until again the heat makes me thirsty.

Asleep With The Sun

Mister Sun, mister Sun
You shine ever so bright
Mighty is your sunlight
Brightens every day

Birds sing happily
When you come out and greet them
The warmth of your embrace is welcoming
Makes it such a cheerful day

Glad to see you, Mister Sun
But it’s time for me to sleep
So a good night to you

Trees Over Buildings

Under the cloudless sky, the scorching heat let’s its presence known

Mother Nature at its peak, boasting of her power

While the people all cower, hide under the magnificent Acacia tree

 

Looking around you’ll see only that one old tree

It stands majestically beautiful in the midst

of the steel trees they call buildings

who take pride in their tallness and glamour

 

They took them all and didn’t even bother to think

of the consequences

Yet there they were, seeking shelter under its branches and leaves

Cool air being provided despite the dryness

 

And as the sun slowly hid behind the clouds white

I can’t help but wonder if someday they too might take that old Acacia tree

Shade

The heat intensifies as the scorching sun

Continues to beat down unforgivingly.

Sweat, saliva and blood dry up under the summer sky

Quench your thirst with mucky water

As you are squeezed into a pruny prune

 

Then into the shade of an old Acacia tree

Where a cool Watermelon dipped in icy coldness

Awaits to end your thirst
