Cool Thoughts On a Hot Summer Day
A poem by Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko

Sitting under a tree’s cool shade.
Delightfully enjoying ice cold lemonade.

Or perhaps wading around in the ocean blue.
With large, cool waves crashing over you.

Eyes are closed, waiting for a welcomed breeze.
Succumbing to a summer daydream of butterflies and bees.

Ice cream truck sings a familiar tune,
From a time of our youth, gone too soon.

Popsicles, Nutty Buddies, and Ice Cream Cups.
Mom and Dad usually hooked us up.

Ah, splashing around in the neighborhood pool.
Water balloon fights were so amazingly cool.

Thoughts of winter crosses our minds
Visions of snow and icicles, how divine.

Summer storms, lightening, thunder and rain.
Lowering the temperatures enough to keep us sane.

Air conditioned movie theaters are a great way.
To spend some time during the heat of midday.
Enjoy some cool thoughts on a hot summer day!
