...Iambic pentameter is for the ear. Read it out loud.

Bio
While the ashes of marriage #2 were cooling, I began a journal here in verse, to keep myself out of trouble. So far so good, and one day at a time. I took a hiatus this past January, and I missed it terribly. Writing daily had changed the way I think - not my opinions, but the process of thinking itself. So here I am back again, and hungry. I began with three rules: (1) Iambic pentameter, (2) Perfect rhyme, and (3) It had to be true (no hyperbole). I hereby amend rule number 3: If I'm writing about myself, yes, it has to be true. But it doesn't, if I want to tell a story.

Weather Report. Thursday July 8, 2010

Rate: 4 Flag

My God, the heat.  It dominates the day,
And when it's done, it chips away at night.
Though swimming grants a temporary stay,
This Executioner Of Fahrenheit
Proceeds relentlessly along its path
And renders laughing children listless, slow,
And cranky.  Its unfathomable wrath
Is stronger, for our desp'rate need to know
When temp'ratures and outlook might be mild;
To melt the spirit of a playful child
Would somehow render all July defiled.

But this is fresh. And "This Executioner Of Fahrenheit." Wow: impressive iamb'ing!
OMG, it is hot,
Is it not?
Wish it were not.

Wish I could send cool breezes and fresh air to break the heat there. You do capture so aptly the sense of everyone's being held captive by the weather until it finally breaks. Pilgrim is absolutely right as well.
I'll never forget the heat of the East Coast. the sun finally came out here today but I'm sure it will be gone by tomorrow.
DB: Executioner Of Fahrenheit wow.
