Late Summer Sun © Corina L. Ravenscraft 2014

The sky stayed a faded, pale gray-blue;
stone washed denim, dried out by the heat
of a late summer sun, whose sick, jaundiced hue
flattened thin clouds and melted the street.

That platinum, mad, metallic, bright disc
that laughed through June, by July, was hissing.
Even the wind, who fought hard to be brisk,
fell victim, and by August was noticeably missing.

The cicadas hatched under that scalding sphere.
The grass, dessicated, finally crunched into brown.
All agreed that summer was sadistic that year,
and we prayed for dusk, when the devil went down.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
