Summer Sizzle

Potted petals, leaves dry and brittle,
line up patiently for their daily drizzle.


A sprinkle of H2O and plenty of TLC,
they are spared a sunburnt tragedy.


 A war of hide and seek 
with the fiery foe in the sky,

they dodge its burning bullets,
  blocked by marble allies.


Even those who worship
the rays of its force,


 do not brave the watery oasis,
but, instead, change course.

 Only the fierce and the flying 
dare to socialize, 
taking a dip and a dive
before jetting back to their hives,

 refuelled, and on 
the runway, and
ready for takeoff.

Thanks for visiting
and have a fun weekend!
