The Heat of Summer

sunsetThe heat of summer 

I am opening to its fullness
Breathing in the sensation of sun 
as it rests on my skin, 
falls in my hair, 
penetrates my blinking eyes.
I am taking in the warmth.

I am stopping under trees.
Finding oasis in air conditioned halls and cars.
I appreciate the coolness of water over my body.

I am accepting this moment of summer unfolding
full of force and fire because it is.
