Sultry summer sun has set,
ablaze is the sky stretched
across a parched horizon.
Searing, becomes midsummer’s
dreaded dreams drenched in
restless, dizzy sweat and tears.
Slowly, breathe in and out for
the rain dances upon your roof
and steam rises, as relief arrives.
Sweltering is the summer night.
Yet, friendly fireflies light the way
toward darken paths not traveled.
Sluggish visions become clearer,
focused once again, as rain washes
unwanted confusion to bring clarity.
And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.Joel 2:28
A vivid rendering of the time between sleep and wakefulness. And how the atmospheric landscape always seeps into our sleep. (K)
The temperatures have been extreme here this week one day 90 plus the next 60ish. I did welcome the rain the other night to cool the heat of the day away.
we would welcome rain in California, where drought has dug in ~
Strange summer wherever you look. Thank God for the fireflies. -B
And clarity is what we most need in these troubled times of sweltering summers. Beautiful imagery: I love those friendly fireflies!
I noticed them about a week ago. They add to nighttime drama.

I can feel the heat. We are experiencing above normal temperatures already. Wildfires have begun in the province. It is going to be a hot summer. That is a beautiful photo. What a colourful sky!
It seems we’ve had our summer weather early. I wonder what is next. Wisconsin skies can be very colorful.
