summer heat

there are always soft winds
that blow down from the escarpment
on the hottest day of summer
when your sweat beads
falling down the small of your back

it’s refreshing to feel them
caressing your arms
sending cool chills
throughout your body
reminding you of the coming cold

the autumn weather scares off the heat
ensuring those closet sweaters
earn their worth
with the cool days
turning to cold nights

enjoy them while you still can
these hot summer nights
that leave you soaked to the bone
let those cool breezes bring to mind
the oncoming freeze to end it all
