Summer Doldrums....

It's here––summer freedom, but then
come the long days of heat, boredom.
What to do now or later or never?

Freedom from some responsibilities,
but not other daily routines that demand
time, diligence and produce monotony.

Oh, if it was only fall, then....I could
be free of these long hot days trapped
with my air conditioner inside the house.

What can I do now or later or never?
Take the gift of time, explore possibilities
develop talents buried by responsibilities.

Open eyes of deadness to see life's
opportunities, realize abilities basking
in boredom––wanting some attention.

Write a poem to release feelings then
realize the value of each season of life
What will I do now or later or never?

If living in the desert means not liking summer, then I could never live in the desert.

I agree, Lin. I also wish to be free of these long hot days trapped inside with the air conditioner. Nice thoughts...
