Cool change

P1040381

 

 

The city lets out a sigh

 

as rain pours down.

 

Its steamy cover melts

 

with fleeing frown.

 

Greenery lightens its hue

 

to stretch and grow,

 

laughing away the dust,

 

changing the status quo.

 

 

A southerly breeze dispels

 

the blanketing heat.

 

Release extends to splay

 

it’s tendrils sweet.

 

Seeping into bonded soul

 

and body sour,

 

it spills its liquor bowl

 

of healing power.

 

 

Cool descends to cloak

 

the brooding streets.

 

Frozen humans now,

 

un-paused, resume their beats.

 

Hail declares the peace

 

with drumbeat wild,

 

Fiercest heat, disarmed,

 

replaced by mild.

 

 

The city sighs again,

 

accepting change,

 

geographic fate

 

its weather range.

 

Lightened legs and lungs

 

increase their pace.

 

Beauty whispers round

 

its rain-washed face.
