Hot Summer July Birthday Party

It was hot as a firecracker
Sun sweltering down around
For a birthday party in July.
Under shaded umbrella
All gathered; singing Happy Birthday
To family who each
Had a birthday in July
In span of few days of each other.
July it seems always
To be the hottest time
To do a birthday outside
Among the whole family coming together.

Fall Has Not Come

Fall seems to have not come
Summer doesn’t want to let go
Her sunny hot days
Barely the fall leaves have not changed
So much light shines among them to keep them green
Summer put away your season
Bring Fall into cooler days
Let the leaves turn color
Days are growing shorter
Yet Summer wants to hang on more
Let go until next year
Let Fall come breezing in

Pleading Parched Land Thirsts For Water

Parched land thirsts for water
As hot sun beats down mercifully
Sending hot waves of air
to suck up moisture from the land.

Land begs the sun to turn down heat
But, ignore goes the pleads
As sun sends more humid, hotness down
For land now cracking dry under heat.

When will the clouds come?
For sky is a naked blue ocean
With no clouds in the sky
No, rain comes for parched thirsty land.

Land wait and wait each day
Pleading for an end from sun rays
But, no answer will come
Until there is a change in the wind.

What Are You Doing This Summer?

What are you doing this summer?
Are you a student out on summer break
Enjoying a couple months of freedom
From studying and endless tests
Are you going on vacation
Away from nine to five job
To sit back and relax
On a beach or take a road trip
Away from the work life
Are you spending more time outside
Walking or playing with your dog more
Are you enjoying the warm sun
While lying near the poolside
What are you doing this summer,
I know summer for me
Is time to go out and ice cream
Before fall comes knocking on our doors again
