Rengay Through the Seasons #50 [1-6]

by Masago: Rengay #50 (Aug 10-16, 2008), Verses 1-6 (of 6)

Sweltering day — he tries to cook an egg / on the sidewalk.
A few hours on the beach — she turns a rosy shade.
Panting dog — if only this pink lemonade / could help.
Hot night — we try to sleep above / the sound of the fan.
An afternoon siesta — sounds of an ice-cream truck.
Heat shimmer / on the pavement... gone, as we drive near.

i wish i saw some here... but it's been too darn humid for heat shimmers most of the time

Janice Thomson said...

You must be getting a few shimmers right now with such high temperatures. We're at 30C today and high humidity too.

Andrew: Yes!

John: Thanks.

Polona: I actually haven't seen a lot either, but it has been really hot the past couple of days.

Janice: Yes, it is very hot, especially at night when trying to sleep.
