Hot, Summer Nights

rounding the bend
towards home
with windows down
to let moist heat
in the winds
tousle and whip my hair
towards my face

one hand on the wheel
the other
out the window
all five digits wriggling
in the invisible pressure
drumming to the beat
of the swirling music

pressures of the day
ease off my forehead
and slide away
from my body
the setting sun
inspires a smile
my essence at ease

  1. Loved the visual picture this painted in my head! Reminded me of the joys of summer with the windows down and hands hanging out feeling the wind. (then the voice of my dad yelling to keep our hands in the car!)

    1. Yes, it does! When I need to de-stress, beach waves and babbling brooks in lush, green forests are especially calming for me. πŸ™‚ Sadly, being stuck in the middle of KS does not offer those places so I must resort to YouTube. πŸ™‚ But it helps.
