The mad sun rides the heavens like a cyclops,
scorching all with his glare.
Grass turns brown and crunchy.
Wildfires incinerate the hills.
The water tables run alarmingly low.
And it is only June.
has come too soon.

It is a huge concern. Yet all we can do is move forward into the days and weeks, and try to stay out of the sun.
