The Gift of Hot Days

On hot days
Everything slows down
Everything becomes simple.
Stay cool.

This is the gift of the
Hot days:
It teaches us to
Listen.

Our bodies scream loudly
On hot days
“Drink water!
Stay cool!
Slow down!”
And our big, complex world
Becomes small.
And only the essentials
Remain.

The gift of
Hot days
Is to teach us there is
A core
At the center
Of our complex life
And when push comes to
Shove
Only the Core remains.
So it goes with your
Soul,
Which craves
But one thing
Though the one thing
Masquerades as many.

On a hot day
Your soul cries out
For Love alone.
