Let's Kill Time

hot summer day
let's not talk
just revel in the heat
absorb the sounds
wind
cicadas
children splashing in a pool
chug of a lawnmower
clink of ice in a glass

gulp lemonade
wipe the brow

sizzle

  1. Sounds like a good idea! Except the cicadas...the ones that come out every 13 years freak me out!!! Those red beady eyes and the way they cling to you. But the ones that stay in hiding and just make noise are all good.

  2. I'd hide inside with the AC as I watch with thee.

  5. We've been remarkably lucky here on the island. The sun is hot but the sea breezes have been wonderful this summer.

    1. A sea breeze would be welcome. Ours is more the hair dryer effect

  7. For once, I'm reading about your hot summer and experiencing my own (Okay, ours will last a few days, but still...) Lemonade would be great right now :-)

  10. I like this! I like that you ended with "sizzle," and that you paired it with those bright red-hot umbrellas. Nicely done!
