City Heat

City Heat …

The day was sweltering hot,

the city pulsating,

a kind of haze,

hanging in the air,

tired faces of people,

just drifting by.

Glad for the sunglasses he wore,

he glanced upwards

and saw the rays of the sun,

glittering off of the skyscrapers,

surrounding him.

Different colors,

flashed and shone,

but he knew this was no Emerald City.

Wearily he wandered

along with the crowds.

The streets teaming and hot

and he longed to be elsewhere.

That was when he saw her,

like an angel from afar.

The sun making her red hair,

seem like flames

or a halo about her head.

The loveliest face he had ever seen,

it made his heart skip a beat

and as if in a fantasy –

he walked on toward her

and then he caught her eye.

She flashed him a brilliant smile,

that reflected the sun

and it was so magical.

He wondered what it would be like,

to take her hand

and then in the heat of the day,

he felt like he’d stepped into wonderland.

Before he knew it,

this dream was walking by him.

At that moment he reached out

and took a hold of her hand.

She playfully shook him off,

went skipping forth,

in wonder, he followed along.

Then suddenly he grabbed her by the waist

and together they disappeared into the summer haze.

Two weary city dwellers,

finding some summer love,

perhaps nighttime will find them,

dancing upon a rooftop,

beneath the full moon above.
