Cool Breeze

Finally a cool breeze,

just now before midnight,

from the maddening heat,

at last there's some respite.

Now the crickets begin

their ancient nightly chant.

Through the clouds high in

the east lightning cracks.

Again and again it flashes,

but doesn't thunder much,

or if it does it's so far,

the sound is hushed.

Tonight the air is fresh,

like a pure mountain rain

has washed the air

from the heat of today.

Out above the lake the

skies are still quite clear.

God that breeze is nice.

  2. Simple and refreshing. Love this one. Made me take a sigh and think of all the cool breezes I've enjoyed on hot, moist nights.

  3. Simple, direct and a reminder to appreciate the smallest things in life for they can be profound! Keep writing; you are on a roll! :)

  4. Great descriptive piece.Sounds like Cyprus at the moment (without the lake).

  5. The poem along with the photo is so vivid that I could feel your words against my skin. Very nice.

  6. This is an amazingly powerful piece with vivid word painting. Well done.
