Oh Stagnant Sun!

Blazing in the east
It rises to feast

The heat it brings
The sweat clings

A forceful beat
Sticks to your seat

Dry as a bone
Heavy as stone

Water, thirst
Ready to burst

Rays of daggers
Makes me stagger

No leniency
Nor clemency

A merciless tone
It doth condone

The grandeur
No flash of demure

Outright insanity
Proclaims its vanity

It is so hot
Kills my thought

You are not fun
Oh stagnant sun!

It supposed to be the beginning of the fall season. Though I know I live in California, I thought it would begin to get a bit milder. I guess the sun has other plans.

Whew...I feel the California heat through this piece!
Although we tend to have very hot summers....we did NOT this year...I actually missed it. We are FULL SWING into fall here in the midwest...rain...cooler temps and turning leaves.

Stay cool!

its the day of Dussehra here. the festival of the triumph of good over evil. I pray Ma Durga (our goddess of power and prosperity) for the well being and happiness of you, your family and your friends.

God Bless :)
