WE’RE HAVING A HEAT WAVE,

This is the middle of summer, and a second heat wave is here. What do most of you do? Do you go to the beach, and jump into the cool ocean?  Or, do you lie in the sun hoping to get a tan?  Maybe, you dive into your pool, and later barbeque some burgers, and gulp down a cold beer. Do you go out to eat, as more and more of us, do not want to cook when it’s hot?  …As for me;

 I think it is a great time to WRITE that Story or Novel! (Especially, if you have air-conditioning.)

HEAT WAVE BY Paula Perron

The hot sun is sneaking through my windows

Reminding me of its power

I close the blinds, and sit down to write

For another hour

A fan is sitting on my desk blowing ice cool air

I keep on writing with little care

When it’s lunch, I take a break

Eat a sandwich, and a piece of cake

At 3:00 P.M.it is ninety degrees

Even so I am cooled by the Fan’s breeze

In the afternoon, four chapters are complete

I print the pages to keep, change, or delete

The sun sets telling me it’s time to end the day

My reward…a drive to the diner leads the way
