Sunny Disease

Sunny Disease

A Poem by Briana O'Connor
"

A negative take on Summer-No I do not dislike this particular season. This is just something that wheeled around in my brain so I put it to paper. :D

"

Sweltering calidity,

Reflection of sun.

Drawing in closer,

Scorching the flesh.


Rising in temperature...

Blacktops… they simmer.

Footsies of young ones,

Blistering at touch.


Demon of Summer,

Star of the day...

Mirroring off irises,

Obscuring the vision.


Short lived beauty ,

Heat grasping throat.

Paralyzing playtime,

Running for air.


Summertime....

Such a glorious sound.

But alas...

Masses be deceived.


This Season…

It is, but a disease.

I lived for 37 years in NM. I loathed most things about summer. I know, I'm wrong but found this poem resonant.

You make summer sound like a painful plague, one that is to be feared and ran from. I love how you twisted a usually glistening season into something that could be dark. You have a really great way with words!

thank you so much :D
Ah the survey....who thinks what of the summer months? Too hot and unbearable of just what they needed. You've certainly captured summer in all of its glory. Blistering, thick air, uncomfortable but at the same time a necessary evil:)

I liked the way you have written, this is what I think while travelling... I mean, India weather gets fucked when it's summer and this is how we end up cursing.
