Summer in Central Texas

I can feel it coming…


in the same way

I feel a winter storm

or bellyache

after too many sweets.

it starts slowly…

one day warm

maybe a few cool days,

the next day warmer than the first,

then suddenly all the way

to hot…

stifling hot.

The air at daybreak is still…

humid, still and eighty degrees;

at bedtime

it is the same.

Occasional storms

blow through…

I wish for one today.
