We chose the sun, tickling

our necks as we faced

another day, heads held high,

with a long-remembered warmth encircling,


encouraging us onwards.

We found the heat, massaging

our chests as we perspired

through the thick air, breathing hard,

with a too-familiar determination warming,


wearing us onwards.

For the dverse prompt : temperature. Can you tell it’s hot here?
