Sizzling Sol



~~~

The sun beats me down

Like hammer to nail

Baking dry my life

Turning red the pale

~~~

 

This giver of life

Now burns it away

Oh, the love of night

On hottest of days

~~~

 

It may be my fault

Something I have done

That causes this fire

Scorching of the sun

~~~

 

The causal effect

Felt in the sun’s rays

Has me wishing for

The wintery days

~~~

 

We cannot exist

Without your life light

But why do you burn

So God awful bright

~~~

 

Please take a day off

From relentless heat

A cool northern wind

Would taste very sweet

~~~

 

If you continue

To blaze as you do

I may well begin

To start hating you

~~~

  1. “The grass is always greener…” If we have a cold and harsh winter, we’ll be wishing for a day or two when the sun bakes us!

  2. Well written Brad. The sun while being the source of our existence is also harsher during got summers and your poetry taps into those expressions. However, I think for us anything too much is always hard to sustain. Lucky we are inhabitants of the earth, if we were on Mercury or Venus, we would be like burning aliens.

    While not in our immediate region, we’ve been getting nothing but smoke for five days in California due to the wildfires. Today was the first day during all of that time that I caught a glimpse of the sun trying to shine through the smoky haze.

  7. Definitely felt days like that! Praying for winter, yet after a few months below zero I long for the sunshine and the hot days of summer! I am a summer person anyways, having been born in the summer and in the summertime I’ve had my best and most memorable times…Great work my friend!
