Beginning of Summer

Sunday afternoon and the heat is on

Summer has arrived before time

A lot to do and ample time

Stifling weather makes it an arduous task

So I lay on the couch for a quick nap

Fan on the ceiling blows hot air in a blast

Tongue hanging out jaw open wide

Dog keeps breathing rapidly

Moving from place to place

Searching for a cooler spot

Unable to sleep, I get up and walk

Drink a lot of water, directly from tap

As I sprinkle, water on myself

The dog keeps watching expectantly
