A Typical Weather Report

Today is hot,
yesterday was hot,
tomorrow will be hot:
hot, more hot, most hot.

An old friend lives
where it’s not so hot
and often reminds me
of her advantages.

She relates her rought
through old address books
cancelling friends
burrowing each in a shaft.

She comes to visit
sticks me with a meat
thermometer
and feeds me ice cream.

  2. Thinking of you, and the heat in Oregon …
    Here, a drizzling cool summer so far, while floods and fires rage around the world.

      A kind of weather feast or famine. The fires in the western US are really bad this year. And the virus is still with us. I hope you are liking yr British summer!

      1. When I sit in my garden, enjoying an hour of reading in the mild sunshine, ignoring the pressure of things that need doing, I’m grateful, considering what some people have to deal with.
