A quick writing.
It has been more than a few days since my last bit of subpar poetry, so this was long overdue, really.
I think this one really gets the idea of – at the very least – taking weather for granted.
I was expecting a warm summer and whilst that is yet to be seen, the two day heatwave that ended on Sunday was a surprise and reminded me that perhaps I wasn’t expecting the coming summer to be as warm as that heatwave was.
I hope you enjoy.
It was all a suggestion
Sitting somewhere around the edges
We knew what it was
We knew what would be coming
And yet, it still seemed so far from reality
With all of the rain
That fell where we rested
It made things seem easier
It made things feel so far away
So much so that it was easy to forget
Whilst some days signaled
They were ignored
When the sudden heatwave arrived
When the heatwave engulfed for two days
We knew the advent of summer was at hand
