dragon breath

Summer has swooped down on us, as hot as a fire breathing dragon.
We cower in our houses.
Or scuttle into the shade,
or rush to and from our car.
As the great ball of fire rises ever higher overhead we hasten to close the window,
close the blinds,
hide away in the shadow.
We are surrounded by heat.
We breathe heat.
We are heat.
Night falls, but not the temperature.
The dragon stalks by night.

We are experiencing the same here, but a polar vortex is about to descend upon us as it did last winter--but THIS one will be much appreciated!

Wow. Hasn't the weather been odd this year. A polar vortex sounds sinister. Still, better to be unseasonably cool than dangerously hot. I'm with you there.
