Some of you have been saying how hot it has been,
so imagine swimming under here,
or paddling by in a canoe,
feeling the spray of the water
wet your warm skin
instantly cooling, making you smile
for even the few moments of coolness,
making you forget how hot and humid and uncomfortable you feel.
When you get back to shore,
waiting for you is the sweetest freshest watermellon
that has been chilling on ice.
On a hot day that would make me swoon,
and a ice cold glass of fresh water
with crushed ice.
You put some on your forhead and feel it fall
down the front of your face,
enjoying the freshness
and renewed energy.
You walk at the waters edge, the wind changes
and you can feel the mist of the water
falling gently on you, evaporating in a moment,
you welcome the continuous mist that makes it your way,
the wind shifts and you decide one more trip
to the fountain to cool off and go for a swim,
Wonderful, lazy days of summer.
I hope you all enjoy your weekend.
It is supposed to be hot here,
the Indy is in town, and our Capital Ex,
used to be known as Klondyke Days.
I don't live far from either, so
there will be lots of noise,
the buzz of the cars,
fireworks at eleven each night,
music from the bandstands,
and I can enjoy it all from my own back yard.
Be well, take care,
may you have your Very Best of Days.
