July

July

Comes so gradually,
takes so long to get here,
then flies away
before you know it.

Here we are at the end of July,
Feeling the early effects of autumn,
so subtle you may not
or may not want to see,
winter is coming.

Foggy morning,
Will see more of that,
as the sun's rays change,
the angle changing,
creating climate change
that is nothing new to us.

Bright hot July sun
Burning our skin
is there no other way to harness
that power?

July heat,
showing me I have limits.
Never wanted to have limits set,
Feel I am not
alone.

July dreams,
so possible,
July compromise,
well
compromised
by competing interests,
knowing our lazy minds are
tired.

July has a feeling
like it could go on forever,
sometimes you want it to,
somedays
just let it end.

July memories,
always warm,
blistering at times,
Some days I do not even remember,
 those lazy crazy dog days
of
Summer.
