the days long and commanding

I like the beginning being sort of “harsh” then ending so peacefully
You’re very observant and thank you. I was trying to convey smoldering hot and then the calm. 😉
Well, I am certainly glad that I read it so closely
Your poem works so well conveying both the discomfort of heat and the calm of water.
Thank you, Sadje.
Makes me want to dip myself into a pool after a long hot day
Love it! The photo too.
Thank you, Pat!
Beautifully written Eugi..
the lines depict contradictions so well 🧡
Thank you, Nima. 😊
You ‘re welcome Eugi🧡🧡
Very well evoked. ❤
Thank you so much! 😃
It’s a pleasure.
Love “sweltry”–really says how it feels 🙂
Thank you, Rhen. After listening to the local weather report, the forecasters predict we’re due for some sweltry weather this coming week. 😓
Not sure where you are, Eugenia, but I just heard the Seattle area where I am is going to get a bit warmer than suits me. No A/C, but I did buy a super new fan–so I should be okay 🙂
I live north of Atlanta. We have A/C and use fans as well. Up until now, our weather has been pleasant.
Oh my, A/C and fans!! Is it quite humid? I hope you’re taking good care–keeping you and your family in my prayers <3
It gets humid in the summer and muggy from the afternoon thunder boomers. We’re safe and well, thus far, and thank you for thinking of us. You take care, as well. ❤️
You’re quite welcome, and thank you! “Thunder boomers”, I’d not heard that phrase before–sounds like a poem in the making 🙂
