Heat and Haze

Heat and haze on the Bay of Fundy...

“August rushes by like desert rainfall,
A flood of frenzied upheaval,
Expected,
But still catching me unprepared.
Like a matchflame
Bursting on the scene,
Heat and haze of crimson sunsets.
Like a dream
Of moon and dark barely recalled,
A moment,
Shadows caught in a blink.
Like a quick kiss;
One wishes for more
But it suddenly turns to leave,
Dragging summer away.”

“August rushes by like desert rainfall,

A flood of frenzied upheaval,

Expected,

But still catching me unprepared.

Like a matchflame

Bursting on the scene,

Heat and haze of crimson sunsets.

Like a dream

Of moon and dark barely recalled,

A moment,

Shadows caught in a blink.

Like a quick kiss;

One wishes for more

But it suddenly turns to leave,

Dragging summer away.”

  1. Wonderful! Still not much heat and haze here, and I for one, say ‘hooray.’ We’ve had a couple hottish days but nothing unbearable.

    Hi Nan! It seems we’ve had nothing BUT *unbearable* here in NS this summer — or at least in the part of the Annapolis Valley I live in. We don’t get the cooling breezes off the ocean that other communities get. I despise the heat and humidity and will quite honestly be happy when cooler days arrive. I chastise myself every time I think or say that — I know our summers are short and I shouldn’t wish the time away — but I dislike summer more and more each year. Give me a long spring and then head straight into fall! :)

  2. Lovely, Nancy. The photo is exquisite. Seems the world has gone topsy-turvy as our usual humid, death-defying temperatures of summer have been held at bay. They’ve been in YOUR bay, so to speak. Temps here have been unseasonably temperate – and I’ve enjoyed it tremendously!
