Summer’s Betrayal

Cicadas, katydids, crickets

take over the night

their songs varied, comforting

the last colors of evening

spilled from the sky

fallen to earth’s duskiness

I vowed to treasure each day, season,

but summer’s passing feels betraying

as if it steals breath from my days.

  1. Well written! And I can sure tell you, if you were in Boston today, the last days of summer would indeed steal your breath away….or maybe we should steel ourselves to make our way through it. 98 degrees today and humidity, they say, makes it feel like 105. UGH!

    • I heard a lot from England that it was unpleasant, especially since you all aren’t really used to the temps and don’t have houses fitted for it. Our heat index today was 105F and then there was a brief rain and I swear it became a sauna outside. However, I still find it better than 20F with wind swirling while walking the dog. 🙂
