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!

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers!
