My Daily Walk

I walked down to the lodge
At nine this morning
Hot already
Should have been my warning.

The cloudless sky
Let the Ultra violet ray
Penetrate my skin
As I went on my way

I shuffled slowly, the half-Mile
Down to the bistro
Got a drink of ice water
And a cup of Joe.

Walkin home I noticed
The Doves and Killdeer had it made
They were siting together
On a rock, in the shade

The Rabbits and ground squirrels
Were laying side by side
In the cool shady grass
By the roadside.

As I approached
They paid me no heed
As they cooled their little bellies
In the shade of a Sunflower weed.

A Crane and Mudhen
Were in the little pond
Sharing the cool water
As I shuffled on.

A lonely Humming bird
Was feeding on a posey
Didnít bother him
When I got close and nosey

The Heat in Hemet
Seems to bring a special friendship
Between all birds and animals
As I make my heated trip.

Made it home
All alone
Another day
Another Walk
