Racing Dog Days


Summer, anxious, impatient
has chased spring to the curb.

Delicate pastels have withered
beneath a sun so brash it has
brought July to taunt April.

A cozy porch waits for ice tea gossip
about Mother Nature’s struggle to thrive
beneath the paws of racing dog days.

I'd sit longer than you care to think and sip tea and gossip with you! It's a beautiful spot.
