A haiku tale for the dog days of summer.

#235: Dog Days

by Profe Steve

Dog days of summer: Tongues lolling, faces sweating; Life slows to a crawl

Not a hint of breeze As the sun broils and all life Searches for shadow

Sun-made lethargy, Torpor is obligatory ; Work is imprudent

Let me hibernate In a chill, dark den of sleep Until October

*** At 9:00 pm CDT, the temperature where I live is 97 F after a high of 105. (36C and 40.5C)

On a positive note, I'm working on my classrooms to get ready for school to start on the 22nd. I've met a lot of my new students and talked to many of my former ones. One cried because this will be my last year of teaching.
