Summer Haze

Summer Haze

Poetry by Deanna M Ramirez

A dusky sky
in late July
Large raindrops
splash off
hot rooftops
Warm puddles splosh
beneath our floppy feet
Temporary relief
drives up the street
Icy treat, cold and sweet
Watermelon slushies
from Richie's truck
Just my luck
Ma drops coins
from the third-floor window
Running to and fro
scrape a knee and elbow
for a few wet coins
Kids meet at the curb
to sit, slurp and eat
Then play until the
sun retreats
and we greet the moon
Falling fast asleep
to leap
and do it all again
