At dVerse Sanaa is hosting Poetics with an invitation to write a poem about August.
Of course August differs across the globe and I live in Australia (which has its own variations) so a great opportunity to say something of August from the south.
“In our opinion August is not the best time to visit Australia ….” Weather & Climate
Enduring August August, yes you, you cold bastard, rattling loose my roof sheets, knocking down my fences, wounding my beloved trees, flooding my private spaces, leaving me sleepless, worried, stressed, heart pounding with every shrill screech of your forceful breath on my eaves and panes of fragile protection, I yearn for your end and pray for gentle spring, while enduring your bitter and splintered wintry grief.
