Poetry Jam August 7, 2013

Weather extremes
Hot and cold


Summer night
Feel the radiant heat of the street
While music beats !

Winter closes in
Wind swirls and roars - daring you
To get out
~~~~~~~~
Have a great week!

Lovely contrast although I much prefer the summer...

Nice contrast, and i guess we really wouldn't appreciate the one without the other.

I'll take the summer. Yes, you can have that winter.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ☺

Memories of nighttime in the summer make the winter nights warmer.

Leaving your front door can be an adventure, very nice.

Helen said...

Well ... my mind runs straight to Bruce Springsteen and his version of 'Dancing in the Dark' ... much nicer than being stuck in a snow drift!

:-)
