These last few weeks of summer are bringing changes.
As the temperatures hang in the 90s, a hot breeze swirls
in the streets, a welcome relief as the sidewalks
and buildings radiate the sun's warmth
onto the passers-by and commuters.
Here people wait for their buses home,
hoping that they will be able to ride in the
comfort of air conditioning.
Storms are forecast for the overnight,
bringing a cold front that will provide
a precursor of fall weather.
Too soon, we'll all be cursing the cold
weather as we stand in snow and frigid air,
waiting for buses that provide a few
minutes shelter in snug warmth.
