Phoenix, Arizona

Phoenix, Arizona keeps burning, and the heat
Is brutal on the brains, and murder on bare feet.
(It’s slightly less oppressive from midnight until dawn.)
God help us all, and keep us, till summer’s heat is gone!

  1. The Summer will pass. Wishing you cooler more comfortable days

    Happy Wednesday


  2. Well I cope with heat better than cold so good luck with your coming winter. However my guess it is not that bad at all!

  3. Lisa at Greenbow

    I have been reading about the heat out there. It sounds like a nightmare. I hope your ac continues to work. I can’t imagine the stress everyone and everything is under.

  4. We went through that last summer…a nightmare. Hang in there. Winter will be there soon

  5. I echo that prayer – for you there and for us here!

  6. I visited Phoenix once. I think it was in July. oy. I didn’t step outside, even once, if i didn’t absolutely have to.
    This is one cool poem, Teach. Cooler stuff ahead. Fingers crossed.

  7. Brush fire is a terrifying thing. The last time I listened to the news, they said that fire was still away from towns but getting closer. How are people dealing with relocation? The fire alone is a nightmare, and the virus will probably make things so much worse. I hope the burning stops… and people are safe.

  8. The heat on the feet is so painful. Hard to imagine trying to outrun the fires.

  9. Beverly Crawford

    God help us all indeed, and send rains on the raging fires out west.

  10. I especially like the second line. Good write!

  11. I wish you cooler weather and happier times.
